Wow, good work! Can't wait to see the finished product. Very interested in how you're going to match the accelerators and how it shifts once completed.

Yes, I had to use the ecu off the front engine as my second turbotuner usb has a fault and just constantly injects fuel on injector 3.

I love that this is a thing!

Ive always dreamed of building a 2 seat go-cart/ locost type deal with a t5 in the rear. I love your solution for locking out the steering. elegantly simple.

now we need racing/burnout videos!!!!

I'm still not sure at the moment, I'm looking at Jaguar S type rear calipers.
