Every system offers it owns benefits and drawbacks, and although the more difficult systems are generally excellent they have an attached price that far exceeds the simpler systems.
The downside to the system is it is extremely complicated and incredibly expensive, and typically only used for racing/track Differential Gear applications for its high speed cornering potential.
Torque Vectoring Differential 940x310The yellowish arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the corner, generated by the artifical level of resistance being exerted by the TVD externally wheel. This allows for better acceleration from the corner as the car’s turning abilitty can be increased.
A Torque Vectoring Differential is with the capacity of channelling 100% of the offered torque through an individual wheel when needed in the most extreme of circumstances.
With the TVD exerting more resistance onto the outside wheels clutch, it tricks the machine into diverting more torque through it – increasing the total amount power that can be applied and reducing the understeer skilled under acceleration out of a corner.
By continuing to apply this level of resistance through the part, as the vehicle passes the apex and starts to accelerate out it’ll continue to override a normal multiway-LSD – which would again interpret the faster moving outside wheel as slipping and divert torque during acceleration to the within wheel, which it perceives as having more grip.
However, rather than releasing the resistance upon both wheels a TVD proceeds to activate the clutch on the outside wheel only – increasing the resistance experienced by that wheel and making the machine channel more torque through it. This imbalance of power to the outside encourages the automobile to turn into the corner sharper and reducing understeer.
