Abstract : The author, having said that it is sometimes useful to use in cross-country vehicles or other ones that will have to undertake heavy going two power plants (engines, frequently light mass-production ones, plus a transmission for each), and that these transmissions may be set up so as to drive either all the wheels on one side of the car, or one of the pairs of wheels with one wheel on either side of the car, discusses the characteristics of the forces developed by identical engines and also by engines which differ in some respects from each other, i.e. in the amount of wear they have undergone, the way in which their controls are set, etc., and the effect of these differences upon the efficiency of the drive and the course taken by the vehicle. A part of the article is devoted to mathematical formulas bearing upon these matters. (Author)
