Re: Gearbox Designer

heh you can do what the likes of Hyundai do and vastly change the individual gear ratios - 1st and second for good acceleration and 3rd 4th and 5th for good fuel economy - but the trouble is companies that employ that cheap tactic put them in cars that have very poor acceleration and arent good on fuel anyway so the munted ratios just make the problems more evident :P

Will CVTs be available? As well as 2speed autos (ex. GM powerslide---er, Powerglide), 7 speeds (ex, New Mercedes), 8-12 speeds in ultra luxury cars such as Bentley and Rolls Royce? Thanks!

There was some discussion about CVTs in an earlier thread; I think they were contemplating it but unsure.

Re: Gearbox Designer

The new 8 and 9 speed auto transmissions by ZF would be an interesting addition.
