Lets say my engine is producing 100Nm of torque and after torque multiplication with the 1st gear and drivetrain,I achieve my maximum possible torque potential in the driveshaft as 450Nm. In a μ-slip situation(left wheel on Ice and right wheel on tarmac),the max. possible torque I can transfer on Ice would be calculated to then be 150Nm. The theory says that I would have 50:50 torque distribution in a open differential.This would hence mean my Tarmac side would also have a 150Nm torque. Original torque on driveshaft =450Nm Torque at the wheel on Ice = 150Nm Torque at the wheel on Tarmac= 150Nm Torque disappeared somewhere=450Nm-(150Nm+150Nm)=150Nm Where does this extra torque disappear? I'm thinking all this extra torque goes into spinning the pinion gears in the open differential.Is this correct?
