Torque converters use a simple idea to solve a complicated problem. This Science Garage goes over how a torque converter keeps your car from stalling, and how it can actually increase the torque coming from your engine. We also look at the unique system in the Koenigsegg Regera- that uses a transmissionless direct drive torque converter variation to get over 250 MPH! Bart teaches us how cars work by blowing stuff up and cutting things in half. It’s a science show for the car lover who’s easily bored. Join Bart as he explains the science behind everything automotive. This is cars down to the atom. This is Science Garage. Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing! ►Subscribe here: http://bit.ly/1JQ3qvO Check out more Donut Media Videos: https://youtu.be/Pz8IGLgFE2s?list=PLF… Want a Donut shirt or sticker?
