Box Box Box NOW !!!
After a Hopper dies...... its wheel still hops!
Came up with a new transmission for the Burnside that I guess I call Ultra-Drive to fit in with the 3-Speed Super-Matic and 2-Speed Dual-Matic.
It's a 4-Speed torque converter-less automatic that uses fluid couplings instead of a mechanical connection (or as well as I can simulate that...). The goal was not really performance as much as smoothness. It effortlessly slides through the gears with barely any jolt. When below 40mph, the engine will return to idle if the gas pedal is released so downshifts are imperceptible. This transmission would be at home in Lincoln's, Cadillac's and top of the line Chrysler's and other vehicles of that caliber. Maybe in top of the line pickup trucks to. It has no park gear (you get ND1R) so you put it in reverse and set the parking brake.
I've been testing it through towing, performance and regular driving for over 100 miles now.
With a Hudson 308CI I6 (170hp/278lbsft)
it's good for a quarter mile time of around...
17.4 seconds @ 75mph Ultra-Matic
17.3 seconds @ 78mph Super-Matic
17.5 seconds @ 77mph Dual-Matic
17.4 seconds @ 80mph 3-Speed Manual
Can't really screenshot how a transmission performs so here's some pictures of my test mules. I might actually release this because it's actually pretty fun to drive.
another screen dump of my new hopper config!
i loik it
Challenge, which one would win?
Probably the Bollide if it got traction, but if the Hopper had some decent power (ie supercharged V8) and AWD/4WD then my money would be on that.
OT: revisiting one of my old projects and redoing it, I've learnt a lot since
Hopper's time was 2:04.172
For the Bolide I got 2:01.078
However with Hopper it is much easier to make consistent laps and Hopper had bit less HP, I guess air resistance and weight were major contributors to time difference, Hopper really is a track day machine, it's planted where as Bolide is all over the place.
I wonder where he is going...
Uh oh, what happened here?
When one isn't enough
She'll be haulin in no time.
model is a placeholder before anyone writes snarky comments
I can see transportable ramp for jumps and stuff
reminds me of this (at 0:42)
So Hopper loses around 1 second in a lap for Bolide at Hirochi, but manages to still be offroad capable.
I think we have a winner and it does not come from red corner
