 - The drive train looks a little complicated, but everything is routed so all systems operate independantly. Power from the pedals and the motor go through the jackshaft and into the Nuvinci N360 transmission.

 - Because the Nuvinci and pedal chains are both on the same side of the jackshaft we incorporated a stabilizer bar to equalize the force on the jackshaft.

 - Because of the rigitity of the frame we built a limited-suspension rear axle which has about 2 inches of travel. This allows all four wheels to stay on the ground while turning or riding over uneven terrain.

 - The rear axle housing operates like the rear end of a pickup truck. The multiple heim joints allow it to pivot on one axis while preventing twisting from the torque of the chain.
