Additional information:
Close-up of the motor coupling. This chassis is recorded as having double reduction drive. I suspect there was a chassis-mounted gearbox just to the right of this photograph in addition to the normal differential. One of the reasons to suspect that is that the shaft visible here is much smaller than the prop shaft (see other photos) - to me this imply it handled a lower torque. Confirmation from someone in the know would be welcome.
