Has there ever been a serous attempt to have a single motor driving a shaft to which two wheels are attached?
This question is just in principle. I’m not crazy enough to attempt it.
The idea, mainly because of cost of 2x motors 2x esc etc. I agree this is a LOT simpler. And so is a single motor drive. But for someone who have some welding ability, how about manufacturing a truck that can fit to a standard kingpin, and have a solid shaft trough, running on standard skate bearings.
Would a rigid shaft be an issues on corners?
