If there is a company that makes mini differentials, is there a company that makes mini transfer cases?
I would love to see someone build a custom machine using the engine from a Yamaha Apex Sled, 150hp stock with a naturally aspirated 1000cc engine & CVT. Route that to a transfer case so you can retain 4wd.. Imagine what this engine could do with some mods, or even a supercharger or turbo. Stock it's got to be a top contender for the horsepower per cubic inch award and very light as well.
The Apex engine is similar to the R1 engine but with a CVT instead of the 6 speed.
I think that their flight from and hatred of technology is self-defeating. The Buddha rests quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain or in the petals of a flower. To think otherwise is to demean the Buddha--which is to demean oneself.
