Torsen is a contraction of Torque-Sensing. This is is a type of limited-slip differential used in automobiles and it’s a unique method of providing differential action. Its internal components are pretty different from the ones that you’ll find in a conventional differential.
Torsen Differential – How It Works, Advantages & Disadvantages!
This differential works on a very simple principle called worm wheels. This means that the spinning worm gear can rotate the wheel but, on the other hand, the rotating wheel cannot speed that gear. It’s odd but fascinating.
