I'm guessing that won't hold up in a car... The car CVT's that I've seen have a pretty mean looking steel "belt" to hold up to the torque. From what I hear that's the hard part of them...
Mini Cooper also used a CVT, but apparently not a great one. My fiance's Mini has one, I'd much prefer a standard or a good auto. -> http://forums.roadfly.com/f...ooper/9067189-1.html
Seems like a great idea if done right. Can set it up to run the engine at peak horsepower or peak efficiency..
That's what I was thinking, you can
have the best of both worlds with this transmission, but it would take some serious ECM programming to implement. Like I said in my original post, the new Nissan Juke has a CVT as an option, and every review I've read has only good things to say about it which got me thinking about trying to fit one in a Fiero.
