I am interested in designing a gear set for one of my cars and although I have a good understanding of how transmissions work and what ratios I am looking for, it has come to my attention that there may be other factors concerning the design that I am not considering. I was reading an article about Xtrac transmissions a while back that mentioned there were special considerations they take into account such as tire contact patch/traction, etc. Anyone know of any reference material that has equations or information on that? Thanks.
