The outside wheel may swing around on its own, but it just seems counterproductive or inefficient to drive the inside wheel in a turn. Puts a lot of stress on the power and drive train and may end up with chain skipping and or belt slippage. Driving the outside wheel will make the surrey turn on a dime with little effort.
