Now this is something I had not heard or seen. I will do a little searching on this. I know the usual question is how would you cable this? Now that you bring this up, I can imagine someone having 2 - 10 MM Carbs with a Motorcycle dual throttle cable with one having an excessive amount of play so that up to 1/2 throttle you have 1 carb open and after 50% (Could also start at 25% or any other perfentage)Thottle the second carb would start to open so at WOT you have 20 MM of Venturi! Thanks for stirring the idea!
