The Differential is an interactive puzzle kit to help learn and better understand the workings of a car differential. 

The Differential was designed to ensure drive wheels sitting on the same axle rotate at a different rate and cover different distances at the same time.

This mechanism allows a car to make turns without the wheels skidding, prevents wheel slip, reduces tyre wear, and makes entering and going out of turns easier for the driver.

Having assembled the Differential, you can unblock it by pushing the lever in position 1 (Up) and set 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. 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). 

The Mechanism of the Differential is Composed of:

  • The drive gear
  • The locking lever
  • The side gear
  • The locking clutch
  • The wheel

What's Included: 

  • High-quality wooden boards with pre-cut details and other standard supplies. Assembly requires no glue or additional tools. The details come out of the boards with a slight push. 
  • Detailed step-by-step colour instruction manual. Easy to follow – easy to learn. 
  • Examples and suggestions for your fun hands-on projects.
  • QR-code to Pocket Model’s Study Guide (the Differential Essentials with a description of the mechanism, principle of working, main characteristics, definitions, and formulas).
  • QR-code to Ugears AR Application. New exciting features from Ugears to make your learning experience even more fascinating!

Model Size: 17.5*13.5*10.5 cm
Number of components: 163
Estimated time of assembly: 1-2 hours

Recommended for ages 8 and up.

The Differential was developed to be a learning tool rather than a puzzle, but it can be enjoyed as both!
