I am pretty sure that if you do not secure one wheel, one will spin backward
relative to the other with an open diff. Don't ask me to explain it but
that is what I have noticed when I tried it.
I am going to have the Red Mk1 off the ground this week to adjust the rear
shocks and when I have it in the air, I am going to give it a try to see if

If both axles turn together at the same rate, so there is no difference in
their movement relative to each other, then there is no differential effect.
If you hold one wheel stationary and turn the other, so that there is a
difference in their movement, you get a differential effect.
Holding one axle stationary and moving the other axle one revolution will
cause the central carrier to turn one half revolution relative to the axle
that stayed put and one half revolution relative to the axle that turned.
I guess I'll have to either dig up some web video of how this works, or
make one myself.
Of course, this isn't nearly so complicated as figuring out how to edit
ones replies to NOT include a bunch of useless, irrelevant verbiage
in a response.
