Prototype Double-Capacity Manual Tranny
Manual transmissions take quite a beating in the dirt since there's no torque convertor to act as a hydraulic cushion between the engine and the rest of the drivetrain. Just the same, many of us would rather shift our own gears. In the quest for a stronger manual transmission, Gearhead gearboxes has a new design that's promising.
1. Two sets of cluster gears double the transmission's rated capacity
2. Fully synchronized
3. Prototype is based on a Richmond street-style five-speed, but this design can be applied to almost any manual transmission
