    Good video, Andrew.

    From my experiences, it is very hard to teach someone how a differential works with just a book. It usually takes showing someone with a model or video like this for it to sink it.

    Great video. It reminded me of the kind of educational videos (actually, they were reel to reel) we used to see in high school in the old days.
