How a differential works...

Maybe I'm the only slow kid in the room but I never really understood how a differential worked until I watched this video. I don't know if it's been posted before or if anyone is interested but here it is:

Pure genius. Definitely made it easy to understand. (you'll have to stick through a few minutes of some motorcycles driving in circles but it's worth it).


Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
