How Differentials Work

Differentials are specialised gearboxes that allow the two wheels attached to it via an axle to rotate at different speeds. This is important for vehicles turning corners, as the inside wheel needs to turn less than the outside wheel. If the diff wasn't there, the inside wheel would lose grip and skid on the road.
