FULL SPEED AHEAD !

The gearbox design has been quite a challenge : I have a lot of mechanical power to transmit (4.8kW) with a high speed on one side and high torque on the other. Not to mention that the gearbox had to be as compact as possible to fit in the tank. I used roller chains instead of gears to make it easier to assemble run and service, as is it my first gearbox project.
