He’s not going to have to worry about making weight. Very interesting though. He’s surely a lot smarter than I am.

There is potential for some huge benefits from 4 motor independent drives. The trick is going to be the control system, sensor inputs and programming. Get all that worked out and perfected, you could have something.

Impractical, takes the Fun out of driving. It makes the computer the driver , you just tell it where you want to go.
I know you can program it to do some impressive things . with four motors and four independent drive wheels it need a computer to run.
I will never use a self driving car , I dont like ABS or stability control either.

I think it's neat. Running the motors to operate similar to a torque sensing diff would be amazing.
