Helena Handbasket Now make this a manual and put it in my car please.
And rebuild the rest of my car out of Legos while you're at it.
duck&cover Gives a whole new meaning to "The Brickyard."
Tuan Jim I want this to be a technics kit and sold so I can buy and do this and learn something about transmissions via lego.
dododge When I was a kid the Lego 8860 car is how I learned about differential gears. It also had a 3-speed manual transmission, rack and pinion steering, and independent rear suspension plus more mundane things like adjustable seats, moving pistons, and a fan belt. That set was really great.
simon666 Perhaps someone can explain if I'm wrong here, but this really seems to be an automatic transmission based on a centrifugal clutch, which automatic transmissions don't actually use. Is this right?
MrBuddy No idea really. I mostly know engines since that's what seems to need the most maintenance.
Goofy Gorilla Like in a regular car? No, they never really used transmissions like these widely. I believe hydraulics were the first real rage
