DIY 3 Speed MANUAL Gearbox For RC Cars


This gearbox is intented to go with the toyan v8 rc car. The gear ratios are more suitable for this engine that revs lower than an electric motor. I also plan to add a reverse and neutral mechanism.

The metal gearbox has 3 gears. The necessary switching servo is already installed with block.For a quiet and powerful run, the gearbox is equipped with helical gear teeth.Watch the video from JohnnyQ90 where he builds a 3 Speed MANUAL transmission.

Lower gears deliver more power, while higher gears supply more speed — but you’ve got to shift your way up through the gears to reach those high speeds.


In a vehicle with a manual transmission, the flywheel is attached to the engine’s crankshaft, therefore rotating at engine speed./JohnnyQ90
