    No, that is not what a differential is made for.

    actualy this can run. I try another differential model (in this site) same like yours, but it is smaller than yours, it runs.

    What does this actually do?

    This is fantastic. I will use it in my knex emergency vehicle. Do you know of any smaller differentials?

    Sorry, no :(

    But glad you like it!

    I do like it, and I just finished installing it into my semi truck but it isn't a perfect fit and I will have to perform some rather large modifications. Oh, well. If it comes to it, I can just invent my own. Oh, and thanks for your Rubik's cube tutorials. They really helped me out with the perplexing thing.

    Haha, glad I could help out :)

    Yeah you're back!!!!!!!!
    Feels good to touch some knex after a year without, isn't it? :P
    I'm already looking forward to your next ball machine, can't wait!

    Ha, thanks guys!
    It's just a bit hard to build without knex and I was in the US as an exchange student for a year - of cource without knex.
    And it was first of all wierd to touch knex and I was thinking: did I seriousley manage to make big ball machines? HOW???????? lol

    My main constraints are time and space...

    Seriously, I'm not making a joke there XD

    My problem is that i get too focused on ball machines and i hang down with the other things like school
