I was reading the PDF's about the fitti-fusca last night.
The connection between the two engines was thru a "giubo" coupler, which was standard on a Brazilian car named "JK" - a 2000 CC V8, a mix betwen an alfa romeo and a simca.
Some info on the "giubo" joint : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giubo
This is how it looked:
Another interesting details:
-The car had no alternator or generator, it had a fully-charged battery for the race, and it used an external 24V battery to start, and the starter was rewired for more power to start both engines.
-I got the weight wrong - IT WAS 420 Kilos ! Dam thing had almost 1 HP/Kilo
-It had no fan - As I said before, it had a false ceiling with was a scoop to drive air into the engine for cooling, the driver's head was about 6 inches lower than a regular bug, and the windshield was at a 45 deg angle in relation to the original position, this way air made it's way into the scoop above the driver's head.
-The crankshafts on the two engines were out-of-phase by 90 degrees.
-the cams were very hot with a narrow power band, they used a 5-speed Porsche 550 gearbox with all gears changed to be optimal for these cams.
-Front suspension was also from a 550.
I don't know if people saw it yesterday, this is a drawing how it looked:
