Script for hinge motor.
You could get angle between objects and apply torque according to it.
Dream of Algodoo as game development engine...

Maybe you could use a bend hinge.
In the script menu for the axle:
bend = true
bendConstant = (Enter a value for the strength in Newton Meters)
bendTarget = (Enter a value in radians for where the hinge tries to move. This is like Target Length)
motorTorque = +inf (This keeps the hinge from slipping while it is being bent. Lowering this value makes it act like a spring and a hinge at the same time)
