U-joints (other idea)
In the Lego Technic world, universal joints are generally used. They are used in tranmission lines, in all kind of situations where the possibilities of gears stop etc… . But they have a disadvantage. The angle between the horizontal should not be more than 45 degrees. Then you “split” them. The ádvantage of them is that they are not big. I have made u-joints that can stand larger angles. The smaller angle one is for the situation when you don’t have the unique lego u-joints.
About this creation
Text and photo's

A disadvantage of my u-joints is that they are large. But if you have space for them, for example in tractors or in lego factories they are handy.
This photo shows us the large u-joint. It’s large angle you can see in the video

An advantage of this u-joint is that it's angel is big and the motor force, which could be transported, is big.

This is the small u-joint. When you have room, no (more) u-joints and this material, this would be a solution. However, the unique lego u-joint is better.
