Today’s track had less grip than it did in Saturday’s race, due to sunshine but, the Torvec IsoTorque differential still gave me a control advantage so that our Phoenix Corvette could maintain a quick pace.
As the IsoTorque differential is designed to do, I could easily feel the way it reduced understeer entering the corners here, and it enabled me to get the power down sooner upon exit, without unnecessary wheelspin.

Torvec Inc. has been developing its IsoTorque® differential with improved handling and traction capability with HATCI engineers at the Hyundai Proving Grounds in California. The IsoTorque differential delivers nearly a one second per lap improvement in the Genesis Coupe on the Hyundai road course.

Right away we noticed the difference in the feel of the car.
The IsoTorque has allowed the car to have faster exit speeds in the corners which gives us quicker lap times by 1 to 2 seconds on average. This faster exit speed allows us to keep up with higher HP cars in our class.

I noticed that the IsoTorque allowed me to enter corners with a higher speed and go back to the throttle sooner and more aggressively. This is because the IsoTorque eliminated much of the power-on oversteer that I was experiencing with the clutch type diff from the corner apex to track out.

The diff performed flawlessly and the longer I drove on it the more accustomed to it I became. I could really get on the throttle early and power through the turns, just took a few sessions to get used to it and build the confidence up.

We had never run the car at Laguna before. The track record was a 1.43.50 held by another competitor. We immediately were going faster than the track record and our driver had good things to say about how the IsoTorque diff worked.
