Details

The UGears STEM LAB Differential is an educational model and interactive study guide for learning how the Differential improves maneuverability of a car. The mechanism was designed to ensure that the drive wheels sitting on the same axle rotate with a different rate and cover different distances at the same time. The Differential allows the car to make turns without the wheels skidding, prevents wheel-slip, reduces tire wear, and makes navigating turns easier for the driver.

Once the Differential is assembled, you can set it in motion by pushing the lever in position 1 (up) and setting both wheels in motion by rotation of the drive gear or the wheel. The control lever regulates the smooth locking of the left and right wheels independently by turning left or right respectively. In the “down” position of the lever, both wheels are linked in a rigid coupling and can either rotate together (propelled by the drive gear or a wheel) or lock simultaneously (by the lever of the wheel).
