Limited-slip differential for front-wheel drive
2015 - PACE Award Winner
What: Improved traction for fwd vehicles
Innovation: When a drive wheel hits a slippery spot, such as ice, the limited-slip differential sends torque from the wheel on ice to the wheel with better traction. BorgWarner, working with VW Motorsport, devised a cost-effective limited-slip differential for fwd vehicles. It uses BorgWarner's controls and clutch actuation to operate the front differential.
