i havent but it would be pointless, it would way a ton and have the same top-end but lots of bottom end. i would just get one really fast motor.

I heard that twin engine r/c vehicles like the new era savage 21 and the t-maxx actually work more efficiently. cause lets say your car weighs 7lbs. and an extra engine weighs 1lb so now your car weighs 8 lbs. now each engine only has to haul 4 lbs of weight each. but trucks have the space to do it i guess it's just not practical to do it in a touring car.

I've done it to my MT. I sold it. The good thing about my twin engine idea is that I have one that gives good acceleration and one set for good top end. Thus good pickup and high top end. But the weight is a difficult factor to work with. But definitely draws attention
