"If you're looking to get max torsional stiffness, then stacked 2L axles + connectors would definitely be much stiffer in torsion than a single long axle." Axles can twist without breaking in ...

If you haven't seen it, Sariel's limited slip differential technique might do what you want, but it's a little different than what you are asking for: This setup doesn't provide a clean way of producing a fixed amount of torque to a wheel if it's partner is running free. It instead simply disables the differential if the wheels have been running at ...
