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 machine is it is extremely complicated and incredibly expensive, and typically only used for racing/track applications for its high speed cornering potential.
Differential Gear torque Vectoring Differential 940x310The yellow arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the corner, produced by the artifical resistance getting exerted by the TVD externally wheel. This enables for greater acceleration from the corner while the car’s turning abilitty is increased.
A Torque Vectoring Differential is with the capacity of channelling 100% of the available torque through a single wheel when needed in the most 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 amount power that can be applied and reducing the understeer skilled under acceleration out of a corner.
By continuing to use this level of resistance through the part, as the automobile passes the apex and begins to accelerate out it’ll continue to override a standard 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 upon both wheels a TVD proceeds to activate the clutch on the outside wheel just – increasing the resistance experienced by that wheel and making the machine channel more torque through it. This imbalance of capacity to the outside encourages the automobile to turn into the corner sharper and reducing understeer.
