Every system has it owns benefits and drawbacks, and although the more difficult systems are generally excellent they have an attached cost that far exceeds the easier systems.
The downside to the machine is it is extremely complicated and incredibly expensive, and typically only used for racing/track applications for its high speed cornering potential.
Torque Vectoring Differential 940x310The yellow-colored arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the part, generated by the artifical level of resistance becoming exerted by the TVD externally wheel. This allows for higher acceleration from the corner as the car’s turning abilitty can be increased.
A Torque Vectoring Differential is capable of channelling 100% of the obtainable torque through a single wheel when needed in the the majority of extreme of circumstances.
With the TVD exerting more level of resistance onto the exterior wheels clutch, it tricks the machine into diverting more torque through it – increasing the 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 corner, as the automobile passes the apex and starts to accelerate out it’ll continue to override a standard multiway-LSD – which would again coupling China interpret the quicker moving outside wheel as slipping and divert torque during acceleration to the inside wheel, which it perceives as having more hold.
However, instead of releasing the resistance on both wheels a TVD continues to activate the clutch on the outside wheel only – increasing the resistance experienced simply by that wheel and making the system channel more torque through it. This imbalance of capacity to the outside encourages the vehicle to turn in to the corner sharper and reducing understeer.
