[DMCForum] Re: Tug of War vs Bill



New transmission thread, eh?

Don't remember anyone disagreeing that gear reduction multiplies the
power output of an engine. In fact I fully agree that your mythical
transmission for a Honda powered tractor trailer works IN THEORY. I
just want to see you make it a practical reality!

My best friend's 2 story all brick house (1929 construction) house was
pulled up a hill with block & tackle looped back on itself a gazillion
times. Reduction works.
