Great! Too bad we don't get this sort of videos very often...

I'm affraid Snotr might become just-another-fail-blog.

This is the sort of thing that makes not only funny, but interesting and stimulating.

Thumbs up for smart videos! :)

Wow I never knew exactly how this worked... and never really gave much thought on the wheels needing to move at different speeds when turning and how it all worked... (Differentials) Now I know an awful lot thanks to a video that's nearly a CENTURY old! :O

Very nice, I've never heard anyone pronounce the 'H' in "wheel" before, that was amazing. ;)

Shouldn't this be in "cars"? This is a very nice presentation that makes it easy to grasp the concept. Now we need one that deals with a posi-trac differential! :D
