      ummmmm...wut?


      I think I understand what you are trying to do, but how much better does this really work than a charcoal starter with a leaf blower or something?

      To actually answer:

      Poll: Honestly the brake based ones shouldn't be called...

      Honestly the brake based ones shouldn't be called torque vectoring. To be true vectoring you need speed as well as torque control. That's why the systems in Evos and Hondas have the planetary...

      The Silverado SS has a viscous coupling + planetary to do the torque split. It is full time(not auto) and always on,and also lacks low range.

      I believe the NP242 was a Full time with some sort of torque biasing differential. Modern versions of full time are what Land Crusier uses. These new "Auto" transfer cases do not have a differential...

      It really depends on the vehicle. The F150 and the Ram Auto systems seem to be a bit more reactive and engage once there is slip from the rear wheels. This leads to some tail out action before it...

      My MKV R had a shimmy at highway speeds similar to what you are describing. I noticed it most on cloverleafs.
      Ended up being the rear wheel bearings. There was some noise that increased...

      RIP Bill.

      Remember guys, even though we are all adults(hahahahaha)....keep it to 8/10ths or less when playing around.

      Most of us made our mistakes early enough and got lucky enough to learn...

      This is a common problem on many of these propshafts. The mechanism is that while braking, the propshaft spines see torque and it creates a torque bind that does not allow the slipyoke to slip. Then...

      I would really love to see a bolt on ELSD solution for front wheel drive cars with common transmissions. ELSD with pseudo torque vectoring feels quite amazing even compared to mechanical torsen or...

      Had similar-ish solowerks coilovers on my MKV R32 for about a year(I know, not exactly the same). I was slammed for about a week and the ride was ridiculous. Raised it to about 1.5" lowered I was...

      I would not be surprised it it is from some oily puddle. Generally CVJ boots fail and spit grease all over the wheel, but not the outside of the car(see the pictures above). Most of the time, this is...

      Most cars guys I know have made this mistake once, including me.
      Back when I was in highschool I did something similar.

      My Firebird had a weird noise at full throttle and it sounded like the...

      Good to see more examples holding up halfway decent to mileage.

      My father bought a 500 turbo (non-abarth) in April of 2013.
      He currently has somewhere in the realm of 60k miles and so far the...

      Yes, In the FRS sport mode has become a habit like buckling my seatbelt. Once in a while I still forget and I notice pretty quickly. With those stock tires on there it does not take much to override...

      Shipping is no problem, but would probably be about $60 due to weight.
