An Unloading Cone Spin-Resistant Differential 710611
This paper describes a unique limited slip differential concept that was developed by applying currently successful principles of limited slip technology. The differential provides limited slip action under adverse driving conditions, but approaches a true conventional differential action during favorable driving conditions. The design is applicable to any wheeled vehicle which uses a differential. In addition, the differential provides the basis for a new full-time, four-wheel drive concept that provides satisfactory all wheel drive on or off highway.
