Explained: Everything you ever wanted to know about differential steering
Check out this old school video that has all the answers
In this 1937 video made by Chevrolet Motor Division, the theory behind how a rear diff is able to go around corners, without slipping is explained in such a manner that anyone can understand it. You might call it "dumbed-down" – I call it effective! Short, concise videos like this one are really a great way to learn about any subject. This is proof that YouTube didn't create the short informative video, it just breathed life back into the format! Enjoy...
Be sure and check out the US Auto Industry YouTube page for more videos like this one. You'll find the subjects range from early braking systems to transmissions. Learning can be quick, easy, interesting and even entertaining!
Keep on Cruisin'!
