I think those two parameters are incompatible. If it weighs less, the cost will need to be a lot more, due to the added machining required.

I don't think there's a big market for 4 speed transmissions. You can accelerate to top speed faster if you use an algorithm to shift at the optimal points, but other than that, I can't really think of a use for the middle 2 gears.

Re: What would you buy if you could?

Cory think about it, a supershifter with three more gears added. The only thing that has to be machined is the shafts

But for it to be lighter, you need to lighten all the gears, which adds significant cost to the product.

Camera head set for the drivers to wear to get video of the field when they drive.

A pass to get onto the catwalks in Atlanta to take pictures of the fields from above.

Re: What would you buy if you could?

C/D is drifting a bit off of the original intent. My original intent was for a list of products that people would like to be made and not "What would you buy if you had a million dollars?"

Thanks to all who have answered so far.

If it was out and if it worked with the control system the OCZ Neural Impulse Actuator would be an awesome way to drive a robot. http://tinyurl.com/3lnmkj

Some teams use Xbox 360 controllers or Joysticks to drive, but with this you control your bot with you mind!
