- The story behind the development of the world's smallest torque converter -
New FITThe Yutaka Giken development team was asked by Honda development team of a new Fit model to develop a "CVT with a torque converter" (CVT torque converter) instead of "Flywheel (*1) + starting clutch," for increasing starting torque.
At this time, they decided to take up the challenge of creating "the smallest-in-class torque converter" as well.

This story follows the "aesthetics" of our development team who
chose to try two challenges.

Flywheel is a rotating mechanical device that used to store ratational energy. In an engine, this mechanism inhibits minute output fluctuations involved in ignition and explosion.
