First I hated this thing, then I forgot about it. which was fine.
Then I was thinking about landspeed bikes and this damn thing popped in my head.
One of the biggest limiting factors in making usable HP with little 2Ts is narrow powerband.
so, thinking about "short" speed runs you would want a strong rate of acceleration - i.e. 1-2 miles vs 6 miles (is it?) to get up to speed at a place like bonneville.
(compared to having a limited number of shift points where a wide ratio gearbox might make more sense if you had the time/space)
So I'm wondering about this kind of tech for manual (or automatic) digital control of gearing relative to RPM. so, not like 6 shift points, but "infinite" (based on resolution of stepper motor relative to pulley ramp angles etc etc.) just like a CVT is supposed to be. but instead of using the technology to reduce the efficiency of a CVT by limiting its tunability, use it for more precise control vs my foot on launch lever and or springs and weights.
not that the buddfab at the mile doing 96 is a bad thing.
that being said, a "well tuned" setup works great for most applications, and even manual control gives you just that. but they have input and regulation flaws. So, I'm curious if this is a way toward maximum power potential.............
