Useful Facts
Straightforward case for adoption: Confidence report not currently planned.

When a transmission operates as a direct drive, it sends engine input directly to the main shaft, eliminating parasitic gear mesh losses of power and fuel efficiency.

Trucking Efficiency is not currently planning to further investigate direct drive transmissions, due to their simplicity, although they may be lightly covered in our powertrain Confidence Report planned for mid-2015. 

For more information, contact your transmission manufacturer on whether this technology is right for you.
