    I see what you're saying, but no, I don't believe you could do that. You need to connect the positive wire from the internal rumble motor(s) to the + motor output of the rumble pak circuit board, regardless of where it is located. This + rumble motor output on the rumble pak circuit board is not connected to any of the pins, meaning you would need to run a wire from inside the controller to the inside of whatever rumble pak you connect.

Then mount the rumble board permanently in the expansion slot and just run a positive rumble wire into the controller motor(s) from there. That basically gives you the option for two moto...

That basically gives you the option for two motors, and no bulky thing hanging out of the expansion slot at the cost of no controller pak or transfer pak support, which for most people is probably acceptable. Thank you for your comment, and let me know if you have any more questions!
