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). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transmission_(mechanics) 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 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 mechanical engagement...





Corvette SS Preps for Race at Sebring 1957
The 1957 Corvette SS 'concept car', was built in order to race at the 24 Hours of LeMans. Two chassis were built, 'the Mule' and the car to be raced. Its first race would be the test for its preparations at LeMans. This race at the 12 Hours of Sebring would determine whether it could take on the world at LeMans. Famed engineer, Zora Arkus-Duntov, had lead a team of engineers to build this ultra-lightweight (1850 lbs) and powerful (307 horsepower) racing car. They were inspired by the Mercedes 300SL Gullwing and the Birdcage Maserati. To keep weight down, they used a magnesium body that surrounded a tubular steel frame with coil-over-shock front suspension, a de Dion rear axle and aluminum drum brakes. Its fuel-injected small-block V8 could turn out 307 horsepower at 6,400 RPM.
