Differential

Differential - drives both half-shafts at the same time but allows them to be driven at different speeds, as when turning.

A CENTRE DIFFERENTIAL works under the same principle only it drives front and rear driveshafts (which connect to front and rear differentials) and allows each driveshaft to be driven at different speeds.
