Just a question, is not easier to install an hidraulic system? A pump in the engine and a motor in the wheel?
Already been done by yamaha/Bosch-Rexroth . One to one pump to hub, some how this is kept under grips with B-R and it is near impossible to get the exact hydraulic parts needed. I have looked into this and have a guy working on Bosch trying to get this together but its been pretty slow: well, really at a stand still. They did this years ago and there really was not much talk about it. I believe Ohlins was involved heavy with this also. Im sure someone here will come on and correct me if I am wrong. The issue with off the shelf units that you can source easily and affordably is that they are heavy and generally low speed high torque. We want high speed and super light.
