Archie’s F1 gearbox design

1st Nov 2020

Sitting here with rain coming sideways, ignoring the persistent pleas of the quadrupeds to walk the hill, I found myself looking at a YouTube of how a Formula 1 gearbox works - a topic upon which I had occasionally pondered.  

I hadn’t realised that Archie had designed it.  Every GN/FN driver has an F1 gearbox under their arse. Amazing!

In the image you have to imagine the thin dogs in between the gears
