2 news + Differential Gear

Hello people! šŸ™‚

arrow-right-upThe first news is that I’ve added a mailto button right here, under the LinkedIn button. Recently I’ve received some e-mails asking me to share other website’s contents… Well, I don’t think my blog has billions of readers, but apparently some of you appreciate my posts. I thought it could be useful to add a simple button to have a simpler way to discuss. Feel free to write me an e-mail if you want to!

The second news is that the Guestbook was kind of an epic fail. Actually its quite useless, so I’ve decided to try something else. Soon I’ll replace it with a “Similar Websites” section, where I’d like to put banners and links to other websites that share content in line with my blog theme. One more good reason to use the mailto button: write me if you want your website linked on my blog! šŸ™‚

Differential Gear

Finally, this week I’d like to share with you a nice video about theĀ Differential Gear. As God Wikipedia says, “A vehicle’s wheels rotate at different speeds, mainly when turning corners. The differential is designed to drive a pair of wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds. In vehicles without a differential, such asĀ karts, both driving wheels are forced to rotate at the same speed, usually on a commonĀ axleĀ driven by a simple chain-drive mechanism. When cornering, the inner wheel needs to travel a shorter distance than the outer wheel, so with no differential, the result is the inner wheel spinning and/or the outer wheel dragging, and this results in difficult and unpredictable handling, damage toĀ tiresĀ and roads, and strain on (or possible failure of) the entireĀ drivetrain”. The differential solves all problems and its working principle is wonderfully explained by this video: enjoy it šŸ™‚
