I don't have any formal eduamakatuns {makin' a funny..OK?}but if a cam is spinning @ 1000RPM @ a fast idle that means the crank @ 1/2 time is only @500RPM way to slow to run,

I know very little about electronic cars but I do know that Ford had a 302{5.0} that had a timingless distributer that worked off the crank

(distributors are not driven by the crank. they are driven by the cam, and turn at camshaft speed)

now further more IMO EVERYTHING works off the crank without a crank you got nothing
starter ~ crank
crank ~ timing chain& gears~cam~dist~tappets~push rods~rocker arms~valves

also front external all the accessories ..water pump ~power steering Etc. off the crank
external rear ~transmission~ drive shaft ~ differently ~wheels

another example would be distributer less ijnitions but I think im gettin" off topic
