In all kinds of automobiles, differentials are used to split the engine torque in two ways. This device allows the outer drive wheel to rotate faster than the inner drive wheel when the vehicle is making a turn. They are simply essential most especially in four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive vehicles because while turning, they make the wheel that is around the outside of the turning curve roll faster and farther than the one in the inner part of the curve. There are different types of differentials, namely: the open differential, clutch-type limited slip differential, locking differential, epicyclic differentials, and more.
