While the open differential is perfectly fine in dry pavement or high traction scenarios, they perform poorly in low traction situations. For example, if one tire is on ice and the other is on dry pavement, the tire on the ice will spin and little or no torque will be transferred to the wheel with traction. This also occurs on uneven surfaces that flex the vehicles suspension and attempt to lift a tire off the ground.
The Traction Devices described below are designed to provide traction to both wheels at the same time when needed. The differential experts at Ring & Pinion Service can recommend and install the best unit to fit your performance and budget needs.
