It was after-the-fact that I realized I could have considered a twin-engine rig, but I suspect that would have put way too much weight forward of the third wheel (that could have not been given any lead without also setting the second engine ahead of the first). One thing I had considered, however, was the idea of adding a starter motor on the sidecar side to give the rig a reverse.

Yep, go figure!
