Differential Axles

The main purpose of the differential axles is to transmit the force to the wheels of the vehicle by increasing the drivetrain torque.

If the vehicle was only moving in a straight line, there would be no need for differentials axles. The force of the engine and gearbox could be applied directly to the wheels through a geared drive shaft.

But vehicles veer, which means the outer wheel must travel a greater distance than that of the interior wheel. If no differential axle is used, the outer wheel will skid, when trying to keep pace with the interior wheel. It will then be difficult to control the vehicle and the tires will wear out.

Gimbals

A gimbal is a pivoted support that allows the rotation of an object about a single axis.

In vehicles, the gimbal links the gearbox to the differential axle.
