Not sure if this is the right area to post but here goes:

I was reading about an EV Pinto(Crazyhorse) that had two motors connected through the armature shafts.

This is the first time I\'ve ever heard/seen this.

What would be the pros and cons of this?
Has anyone done this themselves?
How did it go?

I am looking at possibly having to do the same. I don\'t have the room or space for a large motor. But, I have an HDC unit and lots of wheelchair motors.

Any input appreciated.

There are no problems paralleling motors in general. If the motors have their shafts connected, this is even better.

The whole assembly will work like a larger motor
