The Drivetrain subteam is responsible for power transmission from the engine to the wheels. This responsibility includes the CVT system, gearbox design and fabrication, and axle construction. The team spends time with sponsors like Gaged Engineering testing CVT setups and new design ideas and taking empirical data to support the design ideas. As the CVT can see significant losses if not setup properly, this is critical. The team also works with other sponsors such as Kimberly Gear as well as numerous machine shops to fabricate and build the gearbox and axles.
