    I just want to add, and I'm trying real hard not to be snarky, but the fact that they're running very slightly different gearing on two different motors on an AWD vehicle means absolutely nothing in and of itself. Different motors have different V/RPM, different torque curves, and these are different sizes. Of COURSE they need to run slightly different final drive gearing. Lord knows what magic they've decided on to control the torque balance front/back, or why they're using different sized motors, or any number of dozens of questions about this design. To simply conclude they're using different gearing to somehow widen the power band is, in my humble opinion, a little naive at best. The logic behind making the front pull harder or less at a given speed range makes no sense whatsoever, in terms of AWD vehicle handling.

    Beyond that, even if they were, it's an AWD 4W vehicle, with independent motors front and rear. A motorcycle is a 1WD, 2W vehicle and if you're running two motors (which we've seen in many instances) you have no option for independent drivetrains for each of them.

    but wait, so now you made two more new threads about transmissions, when you can't even handle people reading and posting in one of your many old ones
    ....I think you are being overly obsessive
    What don't you understand about keeping a thread on-topic?

    Yes, I made an index thread so you don't have to use our search feature which kind of sucks. You're welcome. And yes, I made a post summing up where we're at in 2018 after real world use, so I can point people who think they have all sorts of great new ideas to it, so they understand a lot of this has been tried.

    Once again, you want to pick a fight, do it with someone else.
