alot of the info is described in earlier links in this thread, but needless to say there are two auto trans shifters and poth are seperate, both engines have their own radiator and trans coolers (external also), the rear transaxle has an external electric fluid circulation pump for when the 442 is driving with only the front engine running, this is to keep the trans lubricated and prevent frying the clutches.

that and since MyMonte.com basically rented the track for the day....US41 didnt care...only 4 of our 9 runs were with the window down (just the drivers)
the drive to the track was great! we got great mpg till we started up the rear engine
How do you guys sync the engines?
the enignes are not sync'd, they use the same fuel system, and the threttles are linked by cable (the rear engine having a progressive opening throttle)
The miracle of a Tq converter...each engine revs up on its own, this has been discussed plenty, works great!
