Around The Corner (1937) How Differential Steering Works

How the automobile differential allows a vehicle to turn a corner while keeping the wheels from skidding.

Differential steering From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Differential steering is the means of steering a land vehicle by applying more or less drive torque to one side of the vehicle than the other. Differential steering is the primary means of steering tracked vehicles, such as tanks and bulldozers, is also used in certain wheeled vehicles commonly known as skid-steer, and even implemented in some automobiles, where it is called torque vectoring, to augment steering by changing wheel direction relative to the vehicle. Differential steering is distinct from torque steer, which is usually considered a negative side effect of drive-train design choices.

  1. Why was this recommended? Why did I watch it? I don’t know what a transmission is or an oil filter. Very interesting shit though.

  2. Nice- they aren't worried about hurting our feelings with knowledge! And solved the luggage/driveshaft problem….hahahahaha

  3. The explanations back then were so much better than nowadays. Explanation videos from back then could easily be used to teach young people looking to learn how their cars work much more efficiently than most videos now do. Must be why that era was the Golden Age for America. For the most part, anyway. Now, we have almost an infinite wealth of knowledge at our fingertips, and it's mostly wasted on social media with this generation.. Saddening, is what it is. I wonder where this country will be in another 30 years.. China, for example, blocked all social media from the start, when it started getting to be a big thing. Look at them now, they're ahead of schedule to surpass us in almost every way pretty soon. Because they don't have a generation of dipshits..

  4. Imagine if schools still taught stuff like this rather than trying to reinvent math and indoctrinate our kids with Leftist propaganda. We might actually still be the exceptional nation we once were and still pretend to be.
