Lots of sparkle and lots of smoke all the way down the track. Great idea using silly putty for a mold medium.
Cheers Eh!

I like it alot but would the setup work in the real world I wonder. As some of the Max Power boys have done a similer kind of thing with VW Golfs, minis, and old Mk3 Escorts (UK spec) in past years which were running around the 800bhp aria. But I,ve never heard of two V8,s working together. It could make for a interesting 1:1 build.

The Hurst Hairy Olds was a very successful matchracer for several years, with this exact power system. There are four levers on the consul. Two levers select the gears for each automatic transmission. The other two levers individually adjusts the idle for each engine, just like a multi-engined airplane. There is only one loud pedal that controls both engines.

There is a twin-engined Eldorado cruising the streets of Milwaukee. Back in the '70 we made a twin Eldorado engined autocrosser, with 4-wheel steering.

Gaudy, colorful, and full of attitude.
Nice work, Don, especially with the interior details.
