I don't think this system is intended to push a vehicle on its own, simply to provide assistance to the gas motor while in motion. I see no reason why this wouldn't work in fact, since I do not see any kind of controller included it is probably regulated to provide X number of rpm's giving a small boost in any gear, for us possibly a better boost when EOCing or neutral coasting.

Wish I had $1500 of disposable income to give it a try, if for nothing else to improve on it if it falls short.

Bad News; It seems to be a solution for RWD vehicles only as it is part of the drive shaft assembly.
