If you want something thats gonna get ridiculous . (powerful) Than toss the vari drive.. it is only ment to spin at so many rpms.. eventually you begin to break things on it.. (reason war pig is crippled)

No its not. Its a variable pulley that doubles as a clutch. As your change gears, it changes your belt ratios.. Look at it like its a jackshaft setup even tho its not.. this is an example.

Well, somebody's confused. What it is
, is a CVT or Continuously Variable Transmission. Some folks do refer to a CVT as a torque converter, but I believe that is a misnomer. CVT's are commonly seen on snowmobiles, some ATV's, some golf carts, go karts, etc. Occasionally on cars, too- Nissan has a few out now.
What seperates this MTD vari-drive thing from a "normal" CVT is the actuation method. In most normal applications, the CVT is actuated centrifugally, through a system of weights and springs. In the vari-drive system, it is controlled manually. They both ultimately perform the same functions, utilizing the same basic leverage physics. Hope this clears things up for you folks.

Absolutely, and welcome to my nightmare. There is so much misleading pseudo-information out there, because some twit says something, and a half a million people simply accept it as fact and pass it along...
