Maybe a stupid question, but if I'm correct is the RDE+turbo+MGUK a turbo generators on itself?
My idea was to put the rde between the impeller shell and the exducer shell (where the current turbo designs use a cartridge bearing), with the MGUH connected to the shaft on the impeller end. Something like 600V/300A because of high RPM that would drive electric motors front and rear. In this setup, there would be no battery (maybe small ultracap array for electric hysteresis). As driver demands torque, RPM of the gas generator changes to deliver more amperage. Pretty simple imho.
