About this creation
The credit for the basic principle and its simplificaton goes to other guys (special thanks to Technic Man). I just tried to make it more compact for smaller scale models. Technic Man's design has 9 studs lenght and 5 studs diameter without outer gear. I designed two versions:

A, Low torque tolerance smaller version: 8 studs lenght 3.8 studs diameter (it can be driven by a partially overlapping 'Z24 crown gear', because two 'knife' parts hold its 'Z16 running gear' outer gear, eating up some space among its teeth. (For comparison we put there a conventional Lego differential. Also, we show its internals with the operating principle)

B, High torque tolerance bigger version: 8 studs lenght 5 studs diameter. It can be driven by any bevel gear with any form of coupling.

Quoting Matt Bace Nice job all around here -- both to Technic Man for the original idea and to you for making it much more useful. If I ever getting around to building a large Technic vehicle again, I might incorporate something like this.
Thanks. Let me know if you use it, I am curious about the result. As my main profile is building helicopters, I never tried it. It is interesting issue how the lubrication (soap+water...) can influence its behavior.

Quoting Trevor Buckley Very nice, very helpful. Also, for what it is worth I see no problem with taking an idea, but revamping it and making it better. Thanks for getting this done. I am going to try and incorporate this in my rockcrawler.
You are very welcome to use it. Please notify me, when you post it. Are you planning to build 4WD with 3 differentials?

Quoting Technic Man Exactly equal to my own. http://mocpages.com/moc.php/358137 4/5
Now, I attached a second version, and gave you credit and reference.

In terms of operating principle, yes, your model gave the inspiration, thanks for that. But your model is 9 studs long and 5 studs diameter WITHOUT outer gear. Mine has 8 studs lenght and 3.8 studs diameter WITH outer gear. I just wanted it to make more compact to allow building it in narrower track vehicles.
