Transmission Cut Away

Whenever power is transmitted through a manual transmission, the output rotation speed differs from the input speed by the gear ratio of the selected gear. This will affect the available torque. For instance, in First gear, the output spins slower than the input and the output torque is proportionately higher than that at the input. If we have a 4:1 First gear ratio, output torque would be four times as great as the input torque.
