|This model of a manual
transmission in a car includes a stick shift lever that allows
you to shift between three different gear ratios, a working
friction clutch with a clutch pedal/lever, a gas pedal, and a
low gear lockout button! The mechanism is powered by an input
motor and spins a suspended output wheel.
Engage the "cruise control" on the gas pedal to
practice shifting gears with the clutch and shift lever together
with two hands to make nice smooth and quiet shifts. Then for
the full challenge, put the model on the floor, and operate the
clutch pedal and gas pedal with your feet while shifting gears
with your hand!
