one of features we like about our MS (and i assume MX) is the one speed gearbox and the lack of excessively complex 5/6/7 transmission gear box (ala PDK) we think of the power being applied linearly and it works wonders. the simplicity of a single gear also allows for no R&D wasted on recreating modern gear box/clutches/transmissions. most of the torque and power is available right away (0-30mph - off the line neck snapping) and stays on for a long while. ICEs (non turbos) get their max torque later in the RPM (5000+) so they need a gear box to keep maximum power available at all speeds however, MS power does fall off (let's say after 50MPH) and this is where we see the greatest acceleration disadvantage the MS has against fast ICEs think all the drag races which start phenomenal as long as we cut it at 60mph where MS gets beaten towards the end of the quarter mile. so: why not FROM A TECHNICAL PERSPECTIVE have a 2+ gears transmission which would allow for the power/torque to come back (on the higher ration second gear) for better acceleration/quickness later on (above 50mph)?
