A'hem, "torque vectoring" is a technique or method of power transfer in the AWD system. The system that the GT-R uses is just more effective when coupled with its dual-clutch transmission. It doesn't multiply torque or alter output in any fashion other than routing power to the wheel(s) that have the most traction.
