comment Lego MOC joining query
There might well be a "legitimate" way to achieve this build, but we have to be open to the possibility that the builder is "cheating". Many MOCers are happy to use "non-purist" techniques that wouldn't be acceptable in official LEGO models. For some, that includes modifying parts or using non-LEGO components. It is possible that the designer of this particular construction has used unorthodox methods. Do you have any other examples of work by the same builder? If s/he is a serial part-modifier then I wouldn't be surprised if that is what is going on here.

comment How can I create a simple steering mechanism for a car?
I'm confused: the OP explicitly states in comments that he's not looking for a motorised solution, but an approved edit includes motorisation as a requirement?

comment What are the torque limits of gears?
One thing to bare in mind is that some LEGO gears exist in several variants, each of which may have different torque limits. The following tutorial cites some of these differences: sariel.pl/2009/09/gears-tutorial
