Electric, yes.  Internal combustion, maybe.

It should work, but they had better be equal motors.

In this case I would say that one motor would be better but if you have the two small motors and experience with motor controls then it is worth a try.
+ 1 on "they had better be equal motors", I would take that a bit further and say they should be identical.
You may think that you can or may think you can't; either way, you are right.
