The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
A machine consists of a power source and a power transmission system, which
provides controlled application of the power. Merriam-Webster defines
transmission as: an assembly of parts including the speed-changing gears
and the propeller shaft by which the power is transmitted from an engine to
a live axle. Often transmission refers simply to the gearbox that uses
gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque conversions from a
rotating power source to another device...
Manual transmission come in two basic types:
- a simple but rugged sliding-mesh or unsynchronized / non-synchronous
system, where straight-cut spur gear sets are spinning freely, and must be
synchronized by the operator matching engine revs to road speed, to avoid
noisy and damaging "gear clash",
- and the now common constant-mesh gearboxes which can include
non-synchronised, or synchronized / synchromesh systems, where typically
diagonal cut helical (or sometimes either straight-cut, or double-helical)
gear sets are constantly "meshed" together, and a dog clutch is used for
changing gears. On synchromesh boxes, friction cones or "synchro-rings" are
used in addition to the dog clutch to closely match the rotational speeds
of the two sides of the (declutched) transmission before making a full
Release The Draguar! Building a Blown Jaguar Rat Rod - Roadkill Episode 7
On this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan do unspeakable things
to a '74 Jaguar XJ12, one of about 4,700 made. Namely, they cut a giant
hole in the hood and install a Weiand 6-71 Supercharger and twin Holley carburetors on the
350ci Chevy V8 that was already installed in the car when it was purchased
for $1,000. But things can never be easy, so the Supercharger installation is staged in the parking
lot of Gotelli Speed Shop in South San Francisco. Then the duo hits the
road, making their way to Sacramento Raceway, where they can finally
unleash "The Draguar" at the strip.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
