Trans & Clutch 1 - Remove Transmission
This is the first in a multi-video series regarding clutch tech. The
clutch itself is a simple mechanism, but it's buried deep in the engine, so
you can't just cover the clutch. First, you have to cover how to remove
the transmission to get to it.
This project started off strange, got kind-of not-good, and then took a
turn for the worst. The typical clutch job is not as difficult as the next
video will display, but it's good this happened to me because I film this
kind of crap. If for some asinine reason you encounter the kind of failure
I experienced, you'll know what to do after the next video. Clutch
assembly will be covered in a third video.
About the car:
You saw the other assembly video. You know when I put this thing together.
You know it doesn't come out to play when it's cloudy. I've had it on the
road less than an earl change. Freshly rebuilt TRE Stage 2.5 trans with a
brand new ACT 2600 and a sprung 6-puck (MB1-XTG6) on a stock flywheel.
This is Transmission #4.

Dual Clutch Transmissions - Explained
How do dual clutch transmissions work? I explain how the system works, and
why it is so successful at rapid gear changes. How it changes gears, and
how the two clutches operate and transfer torque. Enjoy!
I should probably note that instead of having the bottom shaft as an output
shaft, it would more than likely be a countershaft, having at extra gear at
the end connecting to a third shaft (output). This would keep the engine
and output rotating in the same direction. Regardless, this doesn't take
away from how the system operates.
