Every system provides it owns benefits and disadvantages, and although the more complicated systems are Differential Gear 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 because of its high speed cornering potential.
Torque Vectoring Differential 940x310The yellowish arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the part, produced by the artifical resistance being exerted by the TVD on the outside wheel. This allows for better acceleration out 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 available 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 machine into diverting more torque through it – increasing the total amount power that can be applied and reducing the understeer experienced under acceleration out of a corner.
By continuing to use this resistance through the part, as the vehicle passes the apex and begins to accelerate out it’ll continue to override a standard 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 grasp.
However, rather than releasing the resistance on both wheels a TVD proceeds to activate the clutch externally wheel only – increasing the resistance skilled simply by that wheel and making the machine 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.
