What Is Torque Vectoring?

Torque vectoring is a system that allows cars to control how certain wheels get power. Itís designed to improve handling, stability, and performance and itís a feature that is becoming more and more common.

Simply put, torque vectoring is when a car can transfer or control torque to a given wheel or axle in order to improve performance, grip, handling or stability. By slowing down or sending power to specific wheels, you can shift the weight of a car and improve grip. Braking before you take a corner, for example, puts the weight on the front tires to give it the grip it needs to complete the corner. But sometimes vehicles need this weight and power transfer to occur at different times for improved stability and control. These torque vectoring systems do exactly that, but they work very differently depending on what kind of car you have.
