SSC 0-200 mph (Gear Ratio Testing)

StoneBridge & K-Syran - Starry Night

SSC continues to characterize a few last sub-assemblies from the Ultimate Aero for transfer into the final Tuatara performance package. The team is specifying new gear ratio packs for the Tuatara transmission and 0-200 MPH runs were the logical test for this critical information.


Testing showed that 2nd gear starts achieved by far the best test results as SSC averaged 6 individual 0-200 MPH test runs, each unofficially clocked under 16 seconds. SSC was surprised at how quickly the Ultimate Aero reached 200 MPH, but more importantly the team has now determined what they feel is the perfect gear ratios for the new 7-speed Tuatara transmission.
