its a transmission..........it will not shift when the motor is running. You have to turn the motor off and shift and start the motor in gear, ect.

its a direct drive/gear to gear transmissions with no clutches to slip or burn up, no pump or parasitic hp loss either, they are as bullet proof as it gets
