The ‘best car part’
Posted March 13, 2018 02:23:28 When it comes to buying a new car, one big factor is the engine, with a $2,000 or $3,000 option for an engine.
But a big one is the transmission, and the best part is the best transmission, according to Time.
With the right transmission, the transmission that comes with the car can be worth up to $600,000.
“I can get the best car part for $3.5 million,” says Richard Daugherty, president of the Transmission Experts Group, which represents many auto manufacturers.
“It’s a tough market to find good transmissions, and I’m always looking for that extra $3 million.”
The best transmission can also be the engine.
“The best transmission is the most important part,” says Daugher.
“You can’t have a good engine without a good transmission.”
You can’t find the best transmissions without the best gearboxes, too.
A good transmission can help keep the car in top gear, but you can’t beat the transmission if you want to go fast, too, says Jeff Stroud, president and CEO of the Sport Utility Vehicle Association.
“When you put your car in gear and your engine’s revving up, the car is going to be doing its best to pull away from the road and make a turn,” Stroud says.
“We’ve been saying this all along.”
The gearboxes in a good car The best gearbox is usually a two-speed automatic.
“But if you’re driving in a manual transmission and you’re doing about 15 to 20 miles per hour in a 40 mph zone, you need a good gearbox,” Stoughts says.
The best manual transmission has a gear ratio of 1:6 and a gear rating of 70,000 miles.
The ratio of a 1:2 gearbox can be up to 20,000, but the gear rating can be as low as 55,000 in a 2.7-liter engine.
The gear ratio for a 2-liter engines has been upgraded from 1:1 to 1:3 and the gear ratings have been increased from 60,000 to 85,000 when the car has a 2,000-mile-per-gallon fuel economy rating.
The gears are usually placed in the front or the back of the transmission.
A high gear ratio and low gear rating allow the transmission to shift between gears at low speeds.
But the transmission also needs to be able to shift smoothly.
A transmission that can shift smoothly is a good choice for a sporty car, such as a Ford Mustang.
A manual transmission can handle the high gear ratios, but not the low ones, which can cause problems with the transmission’s stability.
The car should be able at least 60 mph in a safe and predictable manner, but it needs to stay in top condition in order to do so, Stroud adds.
When it’s time to buy a transmission, “You want a transmission that will do a good job of keeping your engine running,” Stoothts says, and that’s what you need in a transmission.
The transmission has to be reliable and reliable enough to last a lifetime, Stought says.
But it also has to last through the elements.
“If you get a transmission and it’s going to get dirty, you can expect it to get worn,” Stouds says.
There’s a big difference between a good mechanical and a good one, though.
The “good” transmission can’t handle extreme temperatures, while the “bad” one can.
But both can handle mild wear and damage.
The good transmission is durable and has to handle the harsh elements that can happen when you get on the highway at high speeds, such the rain and sand.
The bad transmission can get dirty quickly and break easily, such being a rain-soaked road.
It’s important to choose a transmission based on your needs and budget, but if you do need a high-end transmission, there’s no need to look elsewhere, Stughts says (see the top 5 vehicles that can handle a high gearratio engine).
“The big difference is the quality of the transmissions,” Stroughts says—not their price.
It all depends on what you want in a new transmission.
For example, the best manual gearbox for a $3-million car would have a gear rated at 75,000 mpg and a transmission rated at 70,400 mpg.
The top 5 cars that can run a high transmission engine are the BMW X5, Ferrari 458 Italia, Ford Mustang GT, Ford Focus RS, Chevrolet Malibu, Mercedes-Benz SL500E and Audi RS3.
