There is no way around it needing X amount of power to move its weight up a certain incline, or over soft ground, etc at a given speed.

nice guess on the RPM http://forums.aeva.asn.au/smileys/smiley32.gif the good thing about making it electric would be you can make it run faster than you need and just control the speed you go with the joystick so its spinning at 1200 then you want about 2400 to 3000 RPM would make it really usable ...

easy way would be to work backwards work out the speed you want to go then find out the circumference of wheel work out the RPM needed to get the speed required multiplied that by the reduction gives you a shaft speed needed i would also say that you will not need any more than 1/4HP for each wheel ...

RWD with rear engine?

if you do it clutch less you can remove the bell housing and lose about 6 inch in length then you can use a diff yoke and a gearbox yoke together (no tail shaft at all) and you could fit it all under the tray

then balance it out with filling the engine bay with battery's

1200rpm sounds a little slow because the petrol engine is most likly spinning at more than that and you want more speed
