Rob Dahm's Ultimate Sequential Transmission

Posted by #TeamTick on 20th May 2024

In the realm of high-performance racing and automotive enhancements, our Ultimate T56 Magnum sequential transmission stands out as a pinnacle of engineering excellence. Rob Dahm's sequential transmission was put together through a collaboration between industry giants TremecPfitzner Performance Gearboxes (PPG), and Tick Performance, this transmission redefines the standards of speed and efficiency in gear shifting.

The Ultimate Sequential Transmission

The T56 Magnum is not just any sequential transmission; it’s a marvel designed with straight cut gears, known for their robustness and the distinct auditory feedback they provide. This design choice not only enhances the sensory experience of driving but significantly boosts the transmission’s efficiency. The creators of this system have focused on every detail, ensuring that it appeals to all senses, especially the auditory cues critical in high-stakes racing scenarios.

One of the highlights discussed in the video is the transmission’s modular fluid pump design, which enhances lubrication and ensures durability even under extreme conditions. Matt explains how this design accommodates speed sensor sensors or a mechanical pump without compromising the integrity or performance of the transmission. This adaptability makes it an ideal choice for diverse racing applications, from drag racing to road racing.

Technical Insights and Performance Benefits

The transmission features a purpose-built gear set designed to handle high torque and power shifts seamlessly. Unlike traditional H-pattern gearboxes, which can be uncertain and slow, the T56 Magnum’s sequential setup allows for quicker and more precise shifts, shaving precious milliseconds off lap times—a crucial advantage in competitive racing.

It is not only about faster shifts but also about reliability and predictability, which are paramount in racing. The gear position sensor, a pivotal component of the system, provides real-time feedback, allowing drivers to make split-second decisions with confidence.

Rob's Plan For The Transmission

Rob shares experiences and test results, he is very excited to see the transmission’s performance on the track. With less time spent on gear changes, drivers can focus more on racing tactics and maneuvering. Perfect for Rob's upcoming Pike's Peak Hill Climb event.

In the video Rob hints at future enhancements, including more integrated sensor systems and even more refined gear sets. These advancements promise to further elevate the performance and functionality of the T56 Magnum.
