Default Tandem axle build

Hi fellow fabricators. I've been tossing around the idea of building a tandem axle cart lately and curious what is the best set up. The present cart I was thinking about converting to a 6 wheeler is a 48 volt DS carry all. It has a 8" double A arm lift on 25" tires. I don't have any practal reason to make it a 6 wheeler, it's just one of those just because projects. I only breefly thought about leading it 2 wheel drive but I figure I would be hassled to much for taking the easy way out. I was wondering what's the best way to power all 6 wheels. Should I use a single controller and 2 motors? 2 motors and 2 controllers. Are there any thing to worry about with sharing a 5k to 0 ohm throttle if I use two controllers? I was also wondering if I should make is selectable 2 or 4 wheel drive? If I use two controllers I just will toggle each on or off. If I use one controller the I figure I could interrupt the motor wires with contractors.
Any thoughts!

I have thought about a tandem axle build. My second axle would be a dummy, not live. It would also be a gas cart, so this does you no good. Sorry I can't help.

Just when I though no one else had this idea, here it is. Good luck with it. I'll be following along.

I've thought of this too, I was thinking about a chain adapter behind the driven clutch going to the back tandem with the same sized (tooth) sprocket, coilovers on both axles, 4 link the front axle with a panhard bar, link bars from the front axle to the back and say the top 2 bars of a 4 link going to the top of the rear axle with a diagonal bar from the front to the rear axle to keep the rear axle in line with the front. It would be alot of work but what the heck building is what it's about.
