That explains it pretty well
I never really knew exactly how a differential worked before.

Black '91 YJ, pretty much stock for now. Finished engine rebuild. Runs beautifully.

very interesting footage. its not every day that you get to see just how something like that works. i think there are many more things like this that we just take for granite, and never actually even think how this engineering has helped us in so many ways

it kinda makes me wanna buy a set of tinkertoys and start buildin

I have to bookmark that to play for customers. Sometimes they ask silly questions like, "what does that part do, and why is it so important?"

You can't teach an old dogma new tricks.

I think taking something complicated and explaining it in a ver simple and concise manner is a lost art.
Thanks for the film clip.

"Axeheads are supposed to be sharp, but you are one blunt tool."

If you love wealth more than liberty,the tranquility of servitude more than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains sit lightly on your shoulders and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
-Samual Adams

"Your right, the Tea Party and the OWS are the same, just like the America Revolution and the French Revolution were the same. The only problem is the American Revolution ended with Liberty, Freedom, Justice for all and a shining light upon a hill. The French Revolution ended with lynchings, guillotines, murder and socialism. So yeah, I could see how one could confuse the two..."
