What I was looking at was the shock-absorbing characteristic of the guibo. But they're more for not tearing up the drive train when the wheels leave the ground temporarily at full throttle. The MGR doesn't have a clutch, so the only things it would protect against the shock loading from the electric motor would be the CV joints and axles.

As for making a waterwheel, you probably could. I think you could wire the three phases together to produce DC. Unless you're planning on generating 3-phase AC.

This reintroduces the problem of eliminating the differential action. And to get maximum power it would need to be geared to turn at 10,000rpm.
