Transmission Gear Calculator v2.0 for 98/Me/XP/2000/NT/Vista

Computer Program to Analyze RPM and MPH, Shift Analysis, Optimum Shift Points for Most Any Combination of Rear Axle Ratio, Tire Size and Transmission Gear Ratios.

 

The Transmission Gear Calculator lets you calculate engine RPM for most any MPH or MPH for most any RPM, and compare 2 different combinations. Options let you save, open and print the results. In addition, the Shift Analysis screen lets you see how various combinations of gear ratios "stack up" or even let the computer pick when your shift RPMs based on engine dyno curves or curves from one of our Engine Analyzer computer programs.

Other features include:

Option for kilometers per hour or miles per hour.

Recommended speedometer gear and speedometer gear error.

Transmission gear set library as shown in screen below (great for road racers).

Preloaded examples of several common American and foreign transmissions.

Calculating tire diameter from most any tire size rating method (like Pmetric, like P225-60-14).

Creating tables or RPM vs MPH or MPH vs RPM (where you specify the range and step sizes), then graphing these tables as shown in screen below.

Allow for user defined amount of tire slip or tire growth to be included in the calculations.

 

If you double click on a gear ratio input box, you are presented with the screen below, where you can either pick a ratio from a list of ratios you've entered and saved in the program, or calculate it from number of teeth.
