The Quaife torque biasing differential
enables your car to accelerate quicker and cornerfaster.
How?By getting the power to the ground!
The Quaife Differential powers both drive wheels under
nearly all conditions, instead of just one. With an
ordinary open differential, standard on most cars, a
lot of precious power is wasted during wheelspin under
acceleration. This happens because the open differential
shifts power to the wheel with less grip (along the
path of least resistance). The Quaife, however, does
just the opposite. It senses which wheel has the better
grip, and biases the power to that wheel. It does this
smoothly and constantly, and without ever completely
removing power from the other wheel.
In drag-race style, straight-line acceleration runs,
this results in a close to ideal 50/50 power split to
both drive wheels, resulting in essentially twice the
grip of an ordinary differential (they don't call open
diffs "peglegs" for nothing).
In cornering, while accelerating out of a turn, the
Quaife biases power to the outside wheel, reducing inside-wheel
spin. This allows the driver to begin accelerating earlier,
exiting the corner at a higher speed.
The Quaife also controls loss of traction when the front
wheels are on slippery surfaces such as ice and snow
or mud, providing the appropriate biased traction needed
to overcome these adverse conditions. The Quaife Differential
provides constant and infinitely variable drive. Power
is transferred automatically without the use of normal
friction pads or plates seen in other limited-slip designs.
The Quaife's unique design offers maximum traction,
improves handling and steering, and puts the power where
it is needed most. A definite advantage whether on the
track or on the street.
The Quaife is extremely strong and durable and since
the Quaife is gear operated, it has no plates or clutches
that can wear out and need costly replacement.
The Quaife is great for street driving or racing. Racers
don't have to put up with locking mechanisms or spools
that created unwanted understeer under power, or in
the case of front-drive cars, even tear the steering
wheel out of their hands when cornering. Because it
behaves like an open differential during ordinary driving,
street drivers will have trouble telling it's there
until pushing the car's limits.
The Quaife has been proven in everything from SCCA Rally
to Formula 1. It provides autocrossers with such an
advantage, it has become "required" equipment
for a winning effort.
More and more auto manufacturers are specifying the
Quaife ATB Differential as original equipment in their
high performance models - for good reason - it works!
The Quaife ATB Differential comes with something else
