I've been toying with the idea of a bike engine running each set of wheels. Is this possible? Theoretically this would mean you could split your gear shifter into a 'T' split down the middle, meaning you could change gears on the front/rear wheels inderpendantly or run one engine in neutral. Thus enabaling you to change from RWD to 4WD to FWD all on thefly bysimply being a bit clever with your gears, or running one set of wheels in a higher/lower gear meaning you're able to put the power where you want it.
Is this even possible and would it be a car that would be road legal?
This is just an idea thats been knocking about in my head.
Maybee I need to start saving and Searching for an ideal doner car to start a life ending project?
Your thoughtsare appeciated


sorry, old idea. heres tiff needell being a bit of a prick and test driving exactly what you described.



no idea about its legality or anything but sure you could find it on the tiger website... i couldnt be *melonsed* looking it up.

(quick question - anyone know how long you could expect a nice standard hayabusa engine to last in a kit? road miles? not racing)
