Tired of your Vanagon not getting the power to the ground and slipping and sliding in the snow?
Change your Vanagon from a one wheel drive to a two wheel drive!
Torque will always take the path of least resistance. Put a wheel on a patch of snow or mud and the other on pavement, and one wheel spins while the other just stays put and you don't go anywhere. Accelerate hard out of a corner, and as weight transfers to the outside wheel, the inside one loses adhesion and spins.
Not with a torque biasing differential installed!
The first thing people notice the difference in the steering response under power. The car steers tighter - on the throttle the car goes toward the apex. Off the main road, the traction if vastly improved and for those who travel in the snow and ice, the added winter traction is fabulous.
From Paul in Utah, with a 2wd Westfalia:
"I wanted to praise the merits of the positraction partnered with the Hakka CS tires. Through the Blue Mtns from LaGrande to Baker City we hit high wind, ground blizzards, and two inches of solid ice on the freeway. Three different times my rear end started to swing around into a slide on the ice and just as quickly it totally straightened out without me doing anything except praying. What a nifty gadget worth every penny."
Available for both automatic and manual transmission.
Automatic fits 1976-91 VW Bus/Vanagon.
Manual fits 1968-91 VW Bus/Vanagon, all Vanagon two wheel drive manual 4 speed and Syncro front or rear differential. Comes with the differential side bearings.
Also available for Syncro with differential lock, front or rear. You must have a transaxle or front differential housing with the differential locking mechanism to utilize the locking function.
How does this differential work? Here is the technical answer.
