Awesome Lego set demonstrates how CVTs work 01

If you ever want to see how a continuously variable transmission (CVT) works live, here’s a model made out of Lego.

The CVT model is built by YouTube channel Sariel’s Lego Workshop. The channel focuses on building really cool Lego models like a Pneumatic Compressor and even Lego made remote control Catamaran that can actually operate on water.

We’ve already covered how a CVT works, but we can only accompany any explanation with an animated video.

This Lego CVT model allows us to see how the pulley systems on both ends expand and contract as the engine speeds up and slows down.

It’s not the real life model of how a CVT works, but it still gives us a clearer view on how the transmission works.



There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
