Re EDS twin engined Nova - some questions:
Is there any practical advantage to "link" both engines ECU's?
I would have though that the car can operate quite happily with them being independent so long as the throttle, clutch and gear changes are synchro'd up?
The only way I could see them being linked would be if launch control was being used?
The front wheels spun up as weight transfer occured off the line so maybe launch control is not worth bothering with cos you could run the risk of coming off boost in the front engine?
Finally, I didnt realise it went on track - some said it doesn t handle and i was wondering about that.
Apart from being relatively heavy in a short wheel base i would have thought with appropriate spring and dampers plus a good set of boots (which it seemed to have)it ought to be OK? I've seen the twin R5 on track and it handles OK. The only problem I can forsee is the usual turbo boost on /off problem through and out of corners plus potential inequalities of power feed/grip between the rear and the front. There was a twin engine Golf that held the Twin Peaks hill climb record which is a gravel event so it can be sorted?
