211 ratios? I wonder how Nissan came up with that number.Tyler_Canada said:It's only 211 ratios, but it's pretty impossible to notice step changes
Yeah, that would be pretty sweet.njjoe said:I would loved to have seen Nissan incorporate a readout of the CVT ratio in a some sort of gauge or even a graphic on the display. It would be interesting to graphically see how the CVT reacts to changing conditions.
Yeah, that would be pretty sweet.
On the old Skylines, there was a display of the torque split between the front and rear wheels.
I'm sure you can get the effect by driving around with a Consult-II hooked up to the diagnostic port.njjoe said:Eric-
You can always ignore it (as I am sure most people would), but I would find it very interesting to see how the CVT adjusts to different conditions, especially in city driving. Or in Gonzo's case it would be interesting to see what "gear" the MO is in during high-speed runs.
I like gauges and meters. I like to understand the "inner-workings" of machines and mechanisms. Some people are content to know they turn a key and the car runs. I like to know why and how it runs.

I'm sure that Consult-II can take the voltage from some sensor in the CVT (I'll make one up here, the "pulley position sensor") and output a ratio.njjoe said:
Seriously, do you think that data is available through the Consult-II or one of the tools available to the public? I would love to see one of our inventive members develop a readout of some sort. Do you think it is feasible?
