The Formula SAE competition is intended to encourage technical development consistent with safety. This paper describes an application of an automated “fiddle brake”, or traction vectoring system to a Formula SAE car. The expected performance advantages of the system over cars equipped with mechanical limited slip differentials is discussed. Test results are included using only a limited slip differential, the limited slip differential plus the new system, and finally the new system and an open differential. The power requirements of the system are discussed. A discussion of some other traction vectoring designs is included.
