i think its for those who want bragging rights, and like to get into a "pissing contest" about whos truckis bigger or better..
it would be a lot heavier and therefore have even worse handling, not to mention twice the maintenance costs, fuel costs, tuning hassles, and twice the engine replacement costs when the engines die..
but just for interests sake, heres some more info on the beast.. i think itll be pretty strong, considering the kyosho mad force was the first MT withthe strongvertical plate design..
i just LOVE those motorbike style "can" mufflers, they are gutsy !!

Someone should release a single block compact twin cylinder engine for
nitro cars/ trucks. Only then the idea of 2 piston layout
will take off. Less weight, more robust, less tuning, stiffer crank, cheaper cost,
hell if I had the $$$ I would fund it and become a millionaire in 48
Screw the Sirio when you can have a twin cyl 25 for a smililar price.
