Wait……why do we need TORSEN DIFFERENTIAL as we can overcome the problem of traction difference or satisfied with limited slip differential??. The answer is the LSD technology will allow the drive wheels to slip for limited amount of time before it gets locked. But in TORSEN DIFFERENTIAL technology the locking action is instantaneous i,e as

Tires may not sound so engineered and difficult to manufacture stuff, but in reality, tires have a lot more technical specifications involved. You can get the idea of this statement from the large alpha-numeric number written on the side of your car’s tire. Yeah, you may know they come in black Yeah, you may know
Earlier we discussed the working of main types of suspensions which are used in cars. In this post, we’ll discuss in depth some of dependent suspensions, which will be leaf suspension and coil suspension. These are the two major types of suspensions which are used by the automobile industry and can be found in working
Problem with the Standard Differential Consider a situation where a vehicle with one drive wheel is on a surface with good traction and the other wheel is on a slippery track. In a standard differential the left and right axle rotations are completely independent. Since one wheel is on a slippery track, the standard differential
Suspension, as we know, is that part of the car which without which a car can work, but its importance can only be felt when the car is driven. The driver will then come to know that suspension system in the car is not only for the comfort of passengers but also for important tasks
Here we all know that DIFFERENTIAL is an integral part of all four wheelers and wheels receive power from the engine via a drive shaft. The main function of the DIFFERENTIAL is to allow these wheels to turn at different RPMs while receiving power from the engine. Now consider the wheels which are negotiating a
If a road were perfectly flat, with no irregularities, suspensions wouldn’t be necessary. But roads are far from flat. Even freshly paved highways have imperfections that can interact with the wheels of a car. These are the imperfections that apply forces to the wheels.
