Welcome To Our Fully Functioning Animated Vehicle Gearbox

Our interactive animated gearbox is based on a typical rear wheel drive transmission with a manual gearbox that has 3 shafts to transfer drive from the engine through the gearbox; the input shaft, the layshaft (often referred to as the counter shaft) and then finally the output shaft. The input and output shaft lay parallel along the same axis. This parallel alignment reduces the amount of torsion the gearbox case has to endure.
