I think he's onto something there, I am thinking Jeremy's multiple motor and controller thread elsewhere on the forum. Now how many cordless drills can you fit under the bonnet of a car? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

The problem is you've only got 2 hands to hold onto them.

It's an American guy who has stripped out the engine from his car and explains that he is converting it in collaboration with Black&Decker. Squatting over the front of the car, he reaches down to where we see a cordless drill attached to the gearbox input shaft. He then proceeds to drive up and down his garage by squeezing the trigger of the drill. It's a lot funnier to watch...
