If you hook up some LiOn to that Prius of yours it would probably do a torque roll over...over...over...over.

I was wondering the same thing. You'd really have to set them up right so they spool at the same RPM and hit max torque at the same time. I can only imagine what would happen if you had one pushing at max, and the other not so much.

Hmmmmm, we could tightened 2 identical drills to a shaft and run one forward, and one in reverse and see?
