Wavetrac differentials help put the power to the ground, where it's needed. A standard differential design will typically transmit 100% of the torque through to just one wheel, only utilizing half of the tire traction available for acceleration. This amount of traction can easily be overwhelmed by the available power in modern cars. There are a few different designs of differentials available, however, the Wavetrac differential is the only one which will send power to the opposite wheel if one side experiences no grip due to the wheel lifting (as in aggressive cornering) or during zero load conditions (such as ice or similar low traction surfaces). A wavetrac differential responds to these circumstances and transmits power to the wheel which has traction.
