Differential Rotation

As we know, the sun rotates fastest at its equator than at the poles and creates magnetic distortions causing sun spots and etc. I was wondering what earth would look like if it had the same differential rotation speeds as the sun. However I cannot find how to do this. Any help?

There's currently no support for single objects with differential rotation.

Interesting idea though... probably not in v3 either, but it could be an interesting feature for a future version. We'll keep it in mind.
