    Hi Everyone,

    Can someone please explain to me about a Honda transmission. Why use a Honda tranny over another transaxle ? What makes them a better choice for a buggy. I would like to use a V-twin motor in my buggy. I want more bottom end torque that is my reasoning for a V-twin motor. I do not know anything about about a Honda tranny. All input is welcomed.

    Thanks for any help,
    Al

    Most FWD cars have the engine on the right and the trans on the left. If you pulled the trans out, it's input would be on it's right side. A Honda is reversed. The engine is on the left side of the car and the trans on the right. You can mount a bike engine in front of it with a chain. Note the input shaft cannot handle the side load of a chain so must be supported among other issues to over come.

    They are a dime a dozen, have more gear ratios and cost 1/10th of a RPM or Jeffco fnr.

    Hi Al The Honda motor driving these trans run anti-clockwise ,that is why they use them

    Chris

    I ran one off these Civic Box's behind my Busa
    Started off with a chain drive Had an input shaft failure
    Overcome that then it became Chain failures sprockets too close together too short a chain and cooked it Could only do 2 laps of a race
    Overcome that by setting up a gear drive Used 3 gears out of an R1 box I had lying around This worked fine But generated a lot of heat again
    So I fitted an oil pump driven off the gear drive which drew oil from the gearbox through an oil cooler then into the geardrive case and returned back to the box
    Finally had the drive line to the civic box sorted
    Started to show promise had a diff with steering brakes ,had a reverse and had 3rd 4th and 5th gears in the box to use as ratio changes
    I stripped out 1st and 2nd gear as I believe wernt strong enough for the abuse about to be inflicted on it
    Took it out for a nother race meet
    Confidence was building then BANG stripped 3 rd gear Thats ok select 4th gear off we go again a few more laps You guessed it Bang goes 4 th gear Select 5th which didnt last much longer
    So after hours of work shelled it all out and now have 4 well used Civic box's piled up in the corner
    NEXT !!!!!
    Sorry cant post any pics at the moment

    Is it a stock Busa engine?

    Someone wanting to put a smaller engine in front of one might want to buy the input gear box.

    I reseached this until I was blue in the face.

    I came up with what I feel will work, 97-01 accord and prelude (much beefier gears)

    Most common civic boxs are weak sauce... civic si or integra gsr is a maybe. The prelude boxes are used in 1000+ HP drag cars near stock.


    And they have aftermarket gear sets for Honda transaxles too.

    This is how it all started with a sleve over the alloy snout to take a bearing
    the clutch spline welded into the sprocket
    Being supported by a bearing both sides
