Laird Gogins, believes that he has invented a transmission system that will increase mileage in cars by 20 or 30 mpg. Serious claims backed up by 23 patents and some initial order interest. Go dude, go!
Today’s four- and five-speed automatic transmissions need torque converters with coolant, radiators and hoses — all of which cause loss of power and efficiency. Gogins invented a transmission that needs none of those parts. Gogins’ transmission has two identical cams 180 degrees across from each other on the input shaft. The first pair of cams provides engine drive and the second pair of cams provides load drive. The first pair drives the output shaft and the second pair drives the engine for engine braking.
