Don’t know anything about drivetrains other than: “I want to do something different from the kit drive!” – start with this presentation.

You’re a rockstar, as always.


A nice 2am read! Thanks, Ken! I’ll just be tired for 9am class :rolleyes:

Great to use to teach the nubs on some new teams :slight_smile:

Ken, would it be possible to post a PDF version as well ?
