Short Telescopic Transmission Shaft

Notmally if you want to build a telescopic transmission with double u-joint, minimum length is 8 studs if you use 3L joints. To avoid this I have desinged a very similar solution but with only 6 studs long. It is very simple and strong.

This is the standard double u-joint transmission.

Some more pictures:

A little video show it.

I hope this will be useful for you!!

For example to put it between gearbox and axles in a big but short truck.

Of course, the only problem is the max torque allowed. You must be carefully with that.
