Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0000760A1] A transmission control system for a vehicle (10) is disclosed which includes a continuously variable transmission (CVT) (14). The invention provides a kit of parts to upgrade a base model to a higher specification model after initial purchase. The kit of parts provides an interchangeable shift mechanism (22, 24) with increased functionality and further includes alteration of the transmission controller software by a programming means to "enable" the additional features. Additional features available include an alteration to the spacing between simulated fixed ratios so as, for example, to simulate a close ratio manual transmission. Another option includes altering the number of simulated fixed ratios available using a sequential shift +/-.
