Crowkillers presents us a new transmission concept for his next car in 2012 (which car will it be?...).
The transmission shifts in the same pattern as the real 5 speed models of the Ford Mustang and Subaru WRX with the Reverse Gear on the Right Side below the 5th Gear. However the Reverse Ratio is similar to First Gear which is how it should be...
The first part of the video has the Power functions motor hooked up to the Output of the transmission so you can see the engine speed changing (which would normally be "constant", besides the engine throttle) and the second part shows the Power Functions motor hooked up to the Input so that you can see the speed of the rear wheels changing, which is the proper way that the transmission would be displayed, but not as easily visible when changing Gears...
Ratios are as Follows:
- 1st Gear 2.08:1 (Close to Reverse as it should be)
- 2nd Gear 1.60:1
- 3rd Gear 1.25:1
- 4th Gear 1:1
- 5th Gear .75:1
- Reverse 2.25:1 (Close to First as it should be)
If you want to compare, "Standard" Gearbox Ratios like in 8448 and 8466, are:
- Reverse 2.5:1
- First 1.66:1
- Second 1.5:1
- Third 1:1
- Fourth 0.9:1
- Fifth 0.6:1
