No transmission, no adapter plate and coupler. All one gear probably. Man, that's clean. Kelly controllers have some pretty decent sized brushless controllers. I've heard Kelly controllers are "underpowered", but maybe they would work? 5 kWatt, on both back wheels makes, let's see, I have to do some figgerin...

5+5 = 10

10 kWatt!!! That's plenty! It's what my car is right now, and for in town driving, it has perfectly good acceleration. Plus, those brushless motors handle extra power just fine. They just get a bit toasty, but they'd be blowing in the wind, staying nice and cool.
