I had an idea that came to my mind, that would eliminate belt slippage. My thought was, put a horizontal shaft engine in a tractor. Then take a trans axle and turn it so that the input shaft was facing the engine shaft. ( engine l--- --l transaxle). Then make a drive shaft to connect them. A plus with this set up is it would be a 1-1 ratio. Because the trans would spin just as fast as the engine. The only big problem is making a clutch.. What do you guys think?
