Inspired by: The CVTJAP consists Each disc was placed bolts that can take different radios, with relatively small radius of the first disc while the second one is the maximum radius is here when it equals the conventional gearbox to initiate the movement. When the disks reversed their position resembles the large gears in normal transmission.Consequently, the transmission ratio can be varied by pushing or making radios on the disks.In this first phase, the fulcrum of the engine is just a short distance, while at the tire the fulcrum is at a greater distance. In this way the transmission provides high torque at low revs.In this second phase, the fulcrum of the engine is at a greater distance, while at the tire the fulcrum is at a shorter distance. In this way, the transmission provides a small torque at high rpm.The change to the second phase takes place in a gradual and uninterrupted having the characteristics of a CVT transmission.More information at https: / / sites.google.com / site / cvtdejap /
