Every system offers it owns benefits and disadvantages, and although the more difficult systems are generally excellent they have an attached price that far exceeds the simpler systems.
The downside to the machine is it is very complicated and incredibly expensive, and typically only used for racing/track applications because of its high speed cornering potential.
Torque Vectoring Differential 940x310The yellow arrow highlights the torque transfer occuring through the corner, generated by the artifical level of resistance being exerted by the TVD on the outside wheel. This allows for higher acceleration out from the corner while the car’s turning abilitty is usually 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 machine 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 vehicle passes the apex and starts to accelerate out it will 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 hold.
However, instead of Differential Gear releasing the resistance upon both wheels 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 in to the part sharper and reducing understeer.
