    i have a full knex chassis that i will be posting soon. unfortunately, i only have 2 of the large gears, which are used in the axle. Do you think you could use your transmission in my car, this way the speed is more varied. it is heavy, so the motor cant be too fast, or it will not work, but a tranny would definitley be beneficial.
