What does the axle and drivetrain do?


Components of the drivetrain are designed to smoothly transmit the rotating power of the engine, while still allowing suspension to flex and wheels to alter directions. Front wheels are usually driven by an axle that includes constant velocity (CV) joints. Differentials allow for the turning rate of a pair of wheels to be different, which is necessary during cornering.
