Ummm, regarding dimensions, as you can see from the pic, they're pretty oddly shaped. What dimensions would you like?
Anything, really. The proportions appear to be 1 motor diameter wide and high, and 2 diameters long. It looks like the ring gear is more compact with the teeth on the face rather than the flank, like most diffs. For comparison, here's a Subaru transaxle on the VW Type I frame.


There're about 10" between the forks, and I have no problem with moving the axles to behind the crossmember (using off-road racer 3x3 trailing arms).

I guess there are temperature sensors built in. Are the spider gears hidden inside that ring gear in the differential?

TIA
