One using cone or disc clutches to lock the two independent axle shafts together forcing both wheels to transmit their respective drive torque regardless of the traction available. Lug Nut The nuts used to secure the wheels to the car.
A specially designed differential that not only allow the left and right axles to spin independently, but also has the ability to distribute the power to each axle even if one is slipping due to the loss of traction.
a device that adds friction to the internal gears in a differential in proportion to the power being transmitted
A differential designed to route some power away from a free-spinning wheel to the opposite wheel on the drive axle Read more SEE RELATED TERMS: center differential
differential fitted with a mechanism that limits the speed and torque differences between its two outputs. Limited slip ensures that some torque is always distributed to both wheels, even when one is on very slippery pavement.
A differential having special friction mechanisms tending to keep both axle shafts rotating at the same speed, regardless of unequal tire-to-road surface friction.
A device that helps prevent the drive wheels from skidding or losing traction by diverting power from the slipping wheel to the opposite wheel on the same axle.
