Automatic Torque Biasing (ATB) Differential
Swiftune's ATB -Automatic Torque Biasing- differential
The ATB diff delivers a cost saving of almost £500.00 because it fits directly into the standard transmission without the need for a new crown wheel and pinion or matching output shafts...just push in the standard pot joints!
The Automatic Torque Biasing LSD Differential enables your Mini to accelerate quicker and corner faster. How? Simply by getting the power to the ground!
The Swiftune differential, manufactured by Quaife, powers both drive wheels under nearly all conditions. It senses which wheel has the better grip, and automatically biases the power to that wheel. It does this smoothly and constantly, and without ever completely removing power from the other wheel. Power is transferred automatically without the use of normal friction pads or plates seen in other limited-slip designs.
In cornering, while accelerating out of a turn, the ATB diff biases greater 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 ATB Helical LSD differential's unique design offers maximum traction, improves handling by reducing understeer, curbing steering 'fight' and puts the power where it is needed most. A definite advantage, whether you are on a Track Day, racing or driving a performance Mini on the road.
