Every system provides it owns benefits and drawbacks, and although the more difficult systems are generally excellent they have an attached cost that far exceeds the simpler systems.
The downside to the machine is it is extremely complicated and very expensive, and typically only used for racing/track applications because of its high speed cornering potential.
Torque Vectoring Differential Differential Gear 940x310The yellow-colored arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the part, produced by the artifical level of resistance getting exerted by the TVD on the outside wheel. This enables for greater acceleration out from the corner while the car’s turning abilitty is certainly increased.
A Torque Vectoring Differential is with the capacity of channelling 100% of the available torque through an individual wheel when needed in the most extreme of circumstances.
With the TVD exerting more resistance onto the exterior wheels clutch, it tricks the system into diverting more torque through it – increasing the 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 corner, as the automobile passes the apex and begins to accelerate out it’ll 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 inside wheel, which it perceives as having more hold.
However, instead of releasing the resistance on both tires a TVD continues to activate the clutch on the outside wheel only – increasing the resistance skilled by that wheel and making the system channel more torque through it. This imbalance of power to the outside encourages the automobile to turn into the part sharper and reducing understeer.
