So what I'm planning on doing is building a custom buggy/rail using a honda CBR600 motor. I've got everything pretty much planned out except for one part...
I'm going to have independent suspension on all four wheels, which means I'm going to need two driveshafts in the back (on for each wheel).
So my question/s are:
1.) How do I set up an engine that normally use for a chain-driven vehicle to use for a driveshaft-driven vehicle?
2.) How do I set it up for TWO driveshafts, instead of one? (I know that it will be like a driveshaft going to a gearbox, and two drivshafts coming out of it, but where can I find something that will work for that?)


I know this is a strange place to ask about this stuff, but this is pretty much the only place I hang out




Edit: This is basically what I'm going to build... jsut on a much lower budget than this guy had

I really can't help you with this but if you can make a vehicle that can handle jumps like that and not explode, by golly, you can be an admin!

Don't you think that is too much of a punishment? Making him an admin will scar him FOREVER.

Thats the plan
The a-arms are gonna have about a foot and a half of travel, and I'm gonna have to scrounge up the money to buy a nice set of shocks... but it should be able to handle jumps just as good as that guys

Nope, haven't even started buying materials yet. But I want a solid plan to work off of before I start buying things.
For the frame I'm going to be using chromoly steel. I don't wanna star building it 'til I buy the motor and have the drivetrain figure out, so I know the right dimensions and whatnot to build everything. I'll also be using chromoly for the a-arms, and if I can get the money I'd like to do aluminum panels.

I built a mockup frame in 3ds max, does it look structurally (and aesthetically) good?



Edit:
If anyone wants a better look, here's a .obj file...

It won't whenever I add the suspension and stuff. It'll have double A-arms in the front that are gonna be pretty long, a lot like the one in the video in my first post.

Wow, I should've asked you to design the chopper I intend(ed) to use in my cs map. I spent about two weeks working on it in 3dsmax and it didn't really come out that great (although the problem was mostly the texturing).
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

I'm not sure the cbr engine would be the best choice for this project (small low-mid range power, low torque.) I would say the same for the cbr929 engine but that does have 50 extra hp to work with.
A problem you need to consider is that bike engines are made of aluminum and your frame will probably be steel; you can't weld it so you would have to build a mount for it or something.
Your probably much better off using a chain from the engine that's just going to the rear axle than using the double drive train idea.

You should make something like this:
Jeep Hurricane.
Quote:
There are two 5.7-liter HEMI engines in the vehicle: one in the front and one in the back. Both engines deliver 335 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque—a total of 670 hp and 740 lb-ft of torque.

Ewww, no. Firstly, I'd never put a dodge motor in my vehicle. Second, I don't much care for jeep. Third, thats nothing like what I'm building... and why would you put two engines in that? Thats just stupid...

@adhesive - there will be a chain going from the motor to a differential, then two split axles coming out each side.
