1/16 Axle with Differential needed

Current project needs a rear axle with differential. Tamiya/Lesu diffs are physically too large. The 1/18 axles I have seen don't have diffs.
Suggestions requested.

Thanks!

Re: Newbie Scratch Build - D575A Dozer

Re: Newbie Scratch Build - D575A Dozer

Being an avid Komatsu guy, this build is great! Detail, proportion, function are just like the real Super Dozer. Congratulations on a successful first hydraulic test.
