Metals can hold a certain amount of energy per volume right.. Can whatever parts inside of this 4 inch cube manage the energy from the shock when the drive is engaged?
I am interested to see if you design this thing from a mechanical strength point of view also. I remember when I was at school and you would have electrical engineering students taking on projects with mechanical aspects and most of the time the concept seems Ok but when they build the machine you can see that they were not aware of certain things. I am not assuming anything, it just sounds like this design is from an electrical point of view. Can we see a picture of just one part? A part that doesn't give anything away.
I have to be careful here n smikle, must try to get back on thread.
Because of constantly variable power through shifting there is no sudden shock during ratio change.
I will consider posting something but it is difficult at present. I do have meetings coming up that may well decide such an issue.
The gears in the unit are directly comparable to current gears in use for the purpose and the system does not use any untried electrical technology although materials projected are of the very latest spec.
I do apologize for drifting away from the original topic which was, 'whether dual shaft/clutch/seamless shift gearboxes were/are in use in F1.
Personally I believe the thread has been informative on this question, maybe more so because of my so called 'spamming'.
The simple answer boring as it is is 'No'.
It is interesting that others seem capable of placing links to many unproven items of technology without criticism.
How long does one have to post before this is accepted?
Perhaps a link to an anti religious diatribe would meet the bill?
There are after all a billion of them, non of which are logically presented.
Oh sorry I am not allowed to do that.
I promise that is enough, I will behave sir.
