I would have guessed silver or white, I was thinking about the heat, black may have melted in the summer. 

 

What is that, I have to ask your kind of close to California where that could mean something else ?

 

Did you feel the earthquake yesterday, they said it was close to the Southern AZ border ?

 

for all intents and purposes, it is a 2sp PowerGlide transmission. It revs up while you are calling for more power, then tries to gear up to idle speed @1200rpm. They are calling it new [20 or 30 years new] .. infinitely variable trans. It does have a distinct 1st gear.

 

our imp.. at rest

earthquake??? I guess I didn't notice. We get enough sonic booms to disregard a lot of stuff.

It's a Continuously Variable transmission.  Basically 2 pulleys that can vary in size and a metallic belt between the two.  Driving one makes you think that the transmission is in a constant state of slip.  When they break you just replace them as you can't buy parts for the internals.

Quiet on here today.  Maybe celebrating with mom or headed to Hope?  A hot one here.  Washed the Z4.  Mopped all the hardwoods in prep for friends from California visiting,  changing the linen, cleaning the kitchen a bit.  LF entertaining her mom in law.  \

Life in the slow lane......

That's actually software.  They put that in so people perceive a shift.

Interesting.

My niece bought a new Mustang GT, it has a 10 speed tranny!

That explains what the wife said the salesman told her ... You can set the shifter so that distinct shifts are perceived.  He called it "manual" shift...

I hope that's an automatic...

The semi I learned on, only had a 10speed.... but, it only had 1700 rpm from idle to red line.

Yes It's an auto trans.

I did not know that. Does Chevy use the same trans in any of their cars? I think the only rear wheel drive car Chevy has is a Camaro.

Hey y’all 

made it up to Mom’s place just northeast of Dallas.

Little Sister stopped by and then about 11:00 PM her hubby strolled in, up to 0330.

Lunch with Mom and big sister today.

Hot spot off the cell.

Will be slow lane here as well and off to Hope on Wed.

--- I've done no research but yes, I imagine it would be the Camaro. Or Corvette? And of course variations might exist for specific HP/torque applications. Similar to the 8 speed Dodge autos, there are different parts numbers for the 485 HP models and the 707 HP models. Both 8 speeds but made for a specific application.

Interesting. I think the Vette uses a German Getrag tranny. The trans is behind the axel.

Similar design to a go cart transmission, 2 pulleys one gets wider or smaller, being angled this changes the diameter which changes the speed. It sounds like anyway.

-- since I have nothing better to do this Sunday night I checked into the Stingray. For 2018 the automatic is a GM developed Hydramatic 8 speed, not 10 speed. The 7 speed manual is made by Tremec. As you might already know Tremec is known for their high performance, heavy duty trannies, I have one in my car.
