Re: New member new 8 speed gearbox Overlander
Just found some details on ZF 8HP gearbox.
Sounds like it can handle the torque easy enough.
Quoted from wiki. Note 2nd paragraph designed for Chrysler.
One of its main aims is to improve vehicle fuel economy, and it can achieve an 11% saving compared to ZF-6 speed transmission and 14% versus modern 5-speed transmissions. Due to changes in internal design, shift times have reduced to 200*milliseconds, along with the ability to shift in a non-sequential manner - going from 8th to 2nd in extreme situations. In the 8HP70 version, it has a torque handling limit of 700 newton metres (516*lbf·ft), and weighs 90 kilograms (198*lb).
Future development will see two four-wheel drive versions available, with version destined for Volkswagen Group applications, using a Torsen centre differential. It will be able to encompass a torque range from 300 newton metres (221*lbf·ft) to 1,000 newton metres (738*lbf·ft), and will be available for use in middle class cars, through to large luxury sport utility vehicles.
