    I remember reading some discussion about how Tesla could be using the multiple motors in a sequential ratio rather than parallel, or rather -not- paired up to the same gearbox diff/ratio. Some of the smarter blokes were saying that its likely each motor has a different drive ratio to spread the power out over higher speeds. They were saying its likely the battery packs could be closer to peak discharge rates over more of the speed range and that having the different ratios at the diff level removes a need for a "gearbox" but could achieve essentially the same thing. Coincidentally this is already how the Dual Motor cars already work - the front & rear motors have different ratios spreading/power and efficiency over different speeds.

    I'll reserve until i see one torn down, but it does sounds an approach Tesla would take since they fucked up gearboxes so badly with the original Roadster.

    Another Tesla Track video, really need to get some suspension for mine!
