Okay, well i wasn't sure about where to put this topic, but i assume "driveline" has something to do with gearbox? Anyhoo, how come the Auto Falcons are rated at towing 2200kg, but the manual is limited to 1200kg?

Sorry, i lack good knowledge of cars. Oh and i found this on the internet when i was wondering about the weight of an EL: ... html#seats

EDIT: "GEARBOX, Suspension, Brake and Driveline Workshop"... I think i'm going blind at the age of 16 :'(

Because Torque converter in an auto can put up with a LOT of friction.


There would be warranty and clutch issues!


The poor old T5 would most likely Break when trashed when draging another anchor rather than itself.



Carefree, we may not be number one, but we're up there.
