Since torque converters can do a 1:1 gear ratio, is that equivalent to having the same number of teeth on each sprocket for a non torque converter setup? Therefore, when you have a torque converter and 19 in tires gearing has no effect on top speed? The calculator said 203 mph... Or is that not how it works?
sorry to bring this back from the dead
the 1:1 happens at the engine and jackshaft input
using a baja warrior for example, stock it has 10 tooth at the engine, jackshaft input is 20 tooth, jackshaft output is 10 tooth, and axle has 50 tooth (for every 1 rotation at the axle, the engine turns 10 times). a torque converter when at 1:1 will act as if the jackshaft sprockets are the same or non existant. (for every 1 rotation at the axle, the engine now turns 5 times)
pretty much can double your top speed but not lose any low end torque like you would if you removed the jackshaft or made the sprockets on it the same.
correct me if im wrong as im new to
and all their greatness
a stock warrior at 3600 rpm is 20.35mph, with a 1:1 torque converter it would be 40.7 mph, TAVs can get .90:1 making the top speed around 45.2 mph
