The answer is yes......
Would you recommend an automatic or a manual transmission for your Soliton Junior and Soliton 1?
Then you can expect the transmission to be completely electronically controlled. That can be a good or bad thing, btw.It would be a new car (2011/2012), so I can choose within both kinds of transmission.
The easiest way to use an automatic is to idle the electric motor so that the internal hydraulic pressure is maintained; in other words, just like the ICE.So automatic would run constantly at a couple rpm at traffic lights and suchlike, right?
The transmission shift points are controlled by the engine and transmission computers, not the Soliton.Do I have to find the right shift points by adjusting the values in the soliton software?
Beyond this there ar no per/contra for any transmission choice?
The PowerGlide is for rear wheel drive. There are few new cars with RWD, and vanishingly few where a PowerGlide will fit.There is another thread in this forum on PowerGlide transmissions. They seem to be dirt simple, and with a small amount of work can be made to be fully automatic offering the best of both worlds for very little money.
If your donor vehicle is suitable to this transmission, I would consider selling whatever transmission was already in it and using the money for one of these.
