So... CVTs are used in heavy equipment!?!?!? I thought they were not in high production because they couldn't handle torque?! Why aren't all the EV people jumping all over this tech? Why aren't all the elctric motor companies offering computer controlled CVTs matched to their motors????? I love driving standard, but hell, a CVT would be sweet...

I would love to see a car with a "manual cvt" ... instead of a gear shift, a smooth lever
