Torsen LSD(Limited Slip Differential)

For Enjoyable Driving
TORSEN : Torque-sensitive Limited-slip Differential with Superior Traction Performance

JTEKT Torsen limited-slip differentials (LSDs) provide continuous optimal distribution of torque in response to driver operation and road-surface conditions. The result is a level of smooth drivability not possible with a multi-plate LSD. Maximizing vehicle performance, Torsen provides drivers with operability a full rank above the rest.



Draw Maximum Possible Performance Out of the Vehicle

Even at the moment unpredictable vehicle behavior occurs, Torsen immediately distributes the appropriate torque to stabilize vehicle posture and avoid danger. A level of sensitive responsiveness that makes aggressive driving possible.



Superb Torque Distribution Making the Most of Four-wheel-drive Characteristics

The power control resulting from front-rear asymmetric torque distribution enables powerful acceleration on unstable road surfaces and reliable operation when cornering.

  • Torsen type A

    ·Rear differential for sports cars

    ·Center differential for high-performance 4WDs

    Detail >>

    Construction:

    Differential with worm gear for high torque distribution
     

    Applications:

    ·Rear differential for sports cars
    ·Center differential for high-performance 4WDs
     

    Installation positon:

    Front, rear, center
     

    Details:

    High-torque distribution ratio: an example of its use is as the rear differential in rear-wheel-drive sports cars. High-speed cornering, increasing the vehicle handling limits, off-road traction performance and attaining the next level of comfortable drivability are possible.

  • Torsen type B

    ·Front differential for light cross-country vehicles

    ·Rear differential for premium vehicles and sports cars

    ·Center differential for high-performance 4WDs

    Detail >>

    Construction:

    Differential that uses a helical gear to provide low-torque distribution performance
     

    Applications:

    ·Front differential for light cross-country vehicles
    ·Rear differential for premium vehicles and sports cars
    ·Center differential for high-performance 4WDs


    Installation position: 

    Front, rear, center
     

    Details:

    Multipurpose differential that can be used in various applications. Utilizing the inherently good responsiveness synonymous with Torsen, it performs well across a wide range and can be adapted as a front, center or rear differential.

  • Torsen type C

    ·Center differential for full-size SUVs

    ·Center differential for hybird 4WDs

    Detail >>

    Construction:

    Center differential that uses planetary gears to distribute unequal torque
     

    Applications:

    ·Center differential for full-size SUVs
    ·Center differential for hybird 4WDs
     

    Installation position:

    Center
     

    Details:

    Center differential made exclusively for 4WDs. In addition to being designed for compact size and weight savings based on using a planetary gear system, excellent handling stability is achieved as a result of front-rear unequal torque distribution.

  • Torsen compact type C

    ·Center differential for full-size SUVs

    ·Center differential for hybird 4WDs

    Detail >>

    Construction:

    Center differential that uses planetary gears to distribute unequal torque.
