Nice thought but I dont believe it. I can see where one motor would drive the belts, what would the other motor be powering? There isnt enough space for a second spur gear, additional belts yada yada. Show completed pics if ya got em.

If I remember correctly, the project wasn't completed before he sold the car (in reference to the dual-motor cyclone).

Based on how on-road TC's are made, it would be impossible to run something like that. Nice try kid, you almost had us.

Actually IDIOT, it did work..

In order to get the 2nd motor to rotate in the same direction as the original motor, I sent away my spare GTB to be re-programmed to have full power to the motor in the opposite direction (Pm Steve Weiss if you don't believe me) so the motor on the right would rotate in the correct direction.

It's easy to make a double motor cyclone, all you need is another motor mount, it does mount the motor further off the chassis than the left side, but it indeed works.

and my plan when it came to having a spur gear made was to basically have one like a kimborough, thin on the inside but a huge contact area on the teeth so both pinions were meshed on the same spur gear. Or the other idea was to have my friend who designs the bulkheads for the tc5's to basically machine a pinion which would go over both rotor's (would also help greatly when it comes to meshing the bugger lol)

If you don't believe it don't (it does make you a complete idiot though)

I tested it and both motor rotated at the same time and at the same RPM (wires from the ESC's were splied into one connection at the reciever) and when tested on the road (with only one motor as I hadn't had the spur made at that point) it was quite a bit faster than my schumacher xtr3e....

Who knows what it could have done (although according to some cock on here it would do 0mph as it wasn't real )

Dude I beleive you, I can see how it would be done I actualyl commented on someone's cyclone when I was racing once, on how you could fit two motors.

Idiot? Please. You post pics of a partially completed conversion car and when asked question in details about it, get defensive? A pic of the completed car, a mock up drawing, mentioning some of the things you did to complete the car or a cad illustrating what you had on your hands may have kept comments at bay. You know what, I wont hijack the thread arguing with you...it would be nice to see some other conversions out there...COMPLETED conversions.
