    Why dual engines? It seems to me that it would just complicate things. If you need more power than a Happy Time, it's available.

    Sorta re thinking that....dual engine thing...i dont think you could get these engines to sync rpm's, no even close to each other

    Hmmm, twin engines. Interesting concept.:whistling:

    It's been done before, but having both on the rear wheels will have synchronizing problems. Sorta like a tank with twin tracks, or twin-engined airplane.

    Maybe one engine on the front fork and another in the rear.

    Actually this guy as a youtube video of this dragster gokart they built with two moped/scooter engines. If you go and look up my username(Jax Rhapsody, duh) I should have it in my favorites. If you use the same engines it shouldt be that hard to do.

    It looks like when you turn that bike, the front wheel interferes with peddling...
