Since the new ring now has a smaller diameter than the normal 3L ring, can a 16 tooth gear spin next to the new ring when placed on a 3L beam? Can someone test?

yes even when driving hook attached

Thank you. That explains the smaller diameter, there will probably be an application where such clearance is needed.

Well spotted, great to know!

This is an actual first for me.

 

TLG finally built a transmission that is based on reality. having built bags 2 and 3, I am reasonably sure that it shifts 1-N-2-3 (unlike the BMW which shifted 1-2-N-3). I do not have to re-engineer the gears to get the correct sequence. Also, even if I did, with the new parts, all on two axels (in this 3 speed), swapping the gearing around to get the sequence proper would be dead easy.

I know there was much discussion of first up, and first down on the BMW. Does anyone know which way this one is going to shift? If I want to change that I'd rather know now, because if I build more, the engine and transmission will be buried into the model (but not too buried, this bike doesn't have 250 pieces of cowling to hide the lump)

This one has a correct gearbox. 1-n-2-3 You can follow instructions

Exactly. I really hope they will follow this concept with the next supercar models, with all the new gears we have it should be an easy thing to slim down the currently used gearboxes (or even make a totally real H pattern box?).
