what are they used for
What Are They Used For?

Open Slip Differentials:

  • Same amount of torque between each wheel
  • Amount of torque applied is limited
  • Problem Scenarios
    • Slipping on ice
    • Off roading

Limited Slip Differentials:

  • Allow different amounts of torque to be applied to each wheel
types of limited slip differentials
Types of Limited Slip Differentials
  • Mechanical
    • Spring-pack and clutches
    • Spring forces side gears against clutches
    • Clutches “fight” each other
    • Torque applied to wheels is same as torque required to overpower clutches
types of limited slip differentials5
Types of Limited Slip Differentials
  • Fluid-Based (Viscous Coupling)
    • Links front wheels to back wheels
    • Consists of plates and viscous liquid
    • Viscous liquid transfers torque through plates
    • Viscosity of liquid affects amount of torque
types of limited slip differentials6
Types of Limited Slip Differentials
  • Locking
    • Electric, hydraulic, or pneumatic mechanism
    • Activated manually by switch
    • Wheels are forced to spin at same speed
    • For serious off roading
  • TorsenTM
    • Senses difference in torque
    • Uses gears that bind together
