      This is NOT and new Idea. f.ex an old DAF car 'DAF Variomatic' used this Princip and also many smaller and bigger farm machines use it as well.

      What's up? I hope that I will always be healthy, introduce my name Adi from Indonesia, I want to ask, My car uses its CVT transmission technology, so when I stop for about 10 minutes which position do I have to put the transmission panel D? or in N? maybe you can help me answer so that I can prevent even more damage if I am wrong in using Aoutomatic CVT transmission.

      So it takes an eternity to shift through all the infinite amount of gears.

      This also shows why they are so weak and sluggish. Only Subaru has been successful in making a fair CVT. I would never consider any other type of vehicle with a CVT transmission. I probably change 4 to 5 of them a week in vehicles with under 100,000 miles. Subaru is the only exception.

      Thanks for explaining this video. An absolute piece of shit. Yeah metal belts. Great idea. Metal when bent so many times breaks cause of friction. This is nothing more than a go cart centrifugal clutch. Hey stupid manufactures, It be alot more reliable if you make a chain driven system with a centrifugal drum pad instead of this horse shit. Yes it will wear but not like this garbage.

      This cheap design has been used for many decades on kids toys like go carts and mini bikes.
      They can't handle heavy use and abuse and they fail early

      Snowmobile have been using this type of system for years the concept is not new the only problem was the rider always kept a spare belt in the trunk belts were guaranteed to break

      I know it breaks english "rules" or whatever but it's pronounced "Pay-treon" (as in "Patronage" since that's the word it's based off of)

      It seems like the belt would wear out quickly.

      I think if just use one planetary gear at each position so the reverse can't be done. May i right

      CVT gearbox technology is not reliable and cause mechanical problems which is very expensive to repair .

      The animation could go a little slower to help the completely Unknowing become more educated, but all in all this video was quite explicit. It's the closest I have viewed that can compare to the old 1930s educational car videos.

      I'm not sure I quite understand. Are the planetary gears somehow attached to the plate which is attached to the input cone? If so, how? Just a pin and hole on each planet? Thanks.
