Multidrive MDT Tru Tracker

Today we are checking out the Multi Drive Technology Tru Tracker which is a “Rear Track Correction System” for the V8 70 Series Toyota Landcruiser four wheel drive vehicle.

Design Objectives & History

In 2007 Toyota introduced the V8 diesel engine into its 70 Series model range in Australia.

To accommodate the larger engine, the engine bay was widened and front track width was increased, while the rear remained unchanged.

The result is an OEM track width difference of 95mm.

The narrower track at the rear causes the vehicle to sway unpredictably when travelling on soft surfaces.

This also occurs when the vehicle encounters dry wheel ruts or edged surface changes on sealed roads.

Instability issues are also present when towing or with heavily loaded vehicles with a high centre of gravity.

This presents as a significant safety concern as the vehicle can become unstable and difficult to control under these conditions.

The solution is to fit the MDT Tru Tracker which is a complete rear track width correction system.

The components relocate the entire wheel hub assembly to the correct location and equalise the track widths.

As opposed to illegall offset rims or wheel spacers, the Tru Tracker is fully engineered and ADR compliant.
