      I'm involving with designing with using CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission). But since it is a topic that is great with large size (for cars), or small size (machine tools, or some sub -hp vehicles). Anyone knows anything about CVT manufacturers that i can contact for more info? I'm find with a website in Chinese or English. Some golf cart CVT may work, but I don't seem to find any manufacturers. I've been searching for weeks now. Any help will be very appreciative.

      Have a look at www.hi-lo.com - they make variable transmision systems based on variable diameter pulleys with either fixed centres or moving centres. I used something similar back in the 80's to drive an electric race car powered by 2 x 12v batteries. Our driver had to manually move the motor and driving pulley to "change gear" and must have lost several pounds during the race!

      Good luck
