Quote from: zenrat on July 02, 2019, 05:07:55 AMThe way i see this one is a mild engine up front in the usual position for picking the kids up from school. getting the groceries, driving to work etc and a wild one in the back for having fun, going fast and leaving rubber on the road.Two engines, each with a clutch and one manual transmission. Transmission more or less in the usual position with a transfer case between it and the front engine's clutch. Rear engine, mounted over the rear axle, drive taken by shaft from its clutch to the transmission via the transfer case.Drive from the transmission to the rear axle by shaft in the conventional way.To drive on the front engine lock the rear clutch disengaged. To drive on the rear engine lock the front clutch disengaged. Two clutch pedals I think.Each engine will have its own separate fuel and cooling system.Front engine will be a stock 327ci Small Block Chevy. Rear engine will be a supercharged 421ci Pontiac. Transmission will be a Chrysler A883 four speed manual. Rear axle will be a Ford 9".All this will be mounted on a modified '58 Edsel chassis which will carry the 1965 Chevy El Camino shell.

Quote from: Scotaidh on July 05, 2019, 02:07:40 AMOne of my favourite sci-fi writers (Alan Dean Foster) did a short-story in which a custom-car builder - call him "Gus" 'cos I can't remember - was challenged to a drag race - winner got to keep Gus' soul. The car that Gus normally used for racing was described as an early-70s powder-blue Dodge station wagon was a blown & blue-printed 500 hp 426 Hemi that powered the front wheels. This was what was normally used to power the car around town.Strictly for racing, displacing the rear seats and cargo area was a 960 shp T53-L-5 turboshaft engine & reduction gears that powered the rear wheels.For this race, Gus replace the T53-L-5 with a T53-L-11 (1100 shp). I don't build cars 'cos I always duff it up, but for those that do - here's a project idea for this GB.
