I like the idea of a twin motor truck... but I'm not sure I have the skill or capability to back my desire up.

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 !!

I love that exhaust set up, the picture above with the smoke coming out the rear looks great. I also like the idea of the 3 speed tranny. Does anyone know what its worth ?

the full functional air scoop for thecarbs look a treat too, though i wonder if they will work as well as the tried and tested motor saver air filters

I actually think this is what gives it a great look... I love that ram air style hood.

looks awesome, i think most of the time you would just run 1 engine though, but if you wanted more power you could just start up the other

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
hours.



Screw the Sirio when you can have a twin cyl 25 for a smililar price.

I reckon the scoop will become popular as a add on all other nitro car, truck and buggys. one of the ports for the 2 carbs would have to be blocked off though

I was reading about the Twin Titan in the September 2003 issue of RCCA and they said that running one engine at a time was killing the clutch.
