    I love the look of these sidecar racing machines. They look like fighter jets on the ground.

    I was wondering how they would synchronize 2 motors. The I thought if there were a jackshaft with the rear drive fixed, and 2 different sized free driving sprockets on the drive jack shaft...you could have one motor geared for low end torque and the other geared for max top speed.

    The 2wd sidecars I have seen use a universal joint to route power from the engine to the side wheel. It's unclear from the pictures if they are using two joined motors or two separate motors.

    or how about a 3wd hub motor racing sidekick - the possibilities are endless...
