Can someone explain to me what or how this 2 speed gear box works ??
I dont see how it shifts gears and I've had the car full throttle in my hand... no gears move forward or backward nor do I sense a change in wheel rpm that would substantiate a gear change....???

Its basically 2 centrifigual clutches, the spurs spin up to a preset point (that point can be adjusted with a hex head inbetween the spurs on most, it tightens a spring which delays clutch lockup, and hence banging into second) and then locks, and you have a second gear. That is dummed down a lot, lol.
