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