Eheh ya...what is a differential? my buddy was telling me that some guy we know did an amazing burnout in a civic dx so he told him "how did u not break a differential?" so i asked him what he meant but somehow he couldnt explain it... tool repeating stuff he hears without knowing what it means ;D i then proceeded to laugh at him
Im not good at explaining things, so If my definition of a differential is hard to understand, im sorry lol.
Basically a differential gear is connected to the driveshaft and it allows each will to spin at different speeds while going around a corner. It takes the power from the engine and tranny spinning the driveshaft, and uses it to turn the wheel axles.
