How Sequential Gearboxes Work
If -you have read the HowStuffWorks article How Manual Transmissions Work, then you understand the inner workings of a
typical manual transmission, and you know why manual transmissions use the standard "H" pattern in the shifter.
If you have ever ridden a motorcycle, you know that the manual transmission in a motorcycle is nothing like this. On a
motorcycle, you shift gears by clicking a lever up or down with your toe. It is a much faster way to shift. This type of
transmission is called a sequential gearbox or a sequential manual transmission.

It turns out that most race cars use sequential gearboxes as well. A sequential gearbox gives the driver several
important advantages that are very useful in a race car. We will discuss these advantages later in this article.
In this article, you will learn how a sequential manual transmission works and why this type of transmission is now
appearing on so many high-performance vehicles.
What does a sequential gearbox do?
A sequential gearbox is used along with a manual transmission (specifically, a sequential manual transmission) to
allow for faster shifts. However, with an automobile gearbox
, drivers can only shift up or down to the next progression — or next in the sequence — gear.
Do you need a clutch for sequential gearbox?

Why don't cars have sequential gearboxes?
Sequential gearboxes are really designed for motorcycles and race cars. However, some higher-end cars are
beginning to appear with sequential gearboxes.
How do you shift a sequential transmission?
Sequential gearboxes are simple. You just push upward to shift to the next gear or down to shift to the previous
Are gearboxes and transmissions the same?

There are also many types of gearboxes, such as electric tool gearbox

What does each label mean?
is a set of predefined term that describe the
content of different parts of your news site and serve as hints to Google to help classify your content. We hope to provide
useful ways for users to access the information they need despite the rapid changes in content creation worldwide.
Sometimes, label application is informed by publisher selection of appropriate tags in Publisher Center, or
by the application of tags in HTML markup. Google may or may not choose to apply labels algorithmically if our systems
determine that your content qualifies for a particular label type.
Important: If you think a particular label doesn't apply to your site, contact the Google News team. We
continually add new labels to help users understand and select the content they want to read. Labels that aren't listed
in this article are applied algorithmically.
When to apply labels
When you view our record of your publication in Publisher Center, select all labels that apply to the content
on your site or parts of your site.
You can apply labels in a few different ways:
Add domain level labels if they apply to all content that you publish. For example, theonion.com
would label the entire domain as satire.
To denote your "Opinion" or "Satire" sections, apply labels at a section level.
For example, pennlive.com/opinion would only label that section within pennlive.com as opinion.
To add multiple labels to a single section, add the section multiple times.
Types of labels
Important: These labels are suggestions that helps Google classify your content better. If our algorithms
deem them irrelevant, they may not show up against your content on news surfaces.
Below are examples of label types:

that you want, it’s often possible to get a custom design made for your own preferences.
Whether you’re looking for something practical or aesthetic, pendant lights are just as good as any!
Benefits of Pendant Lighting
Firstly, pendant lights have the ability to act as spotlights. If you set one up correctly, the light can be projected to
a singular spot. Doing so draws attention to whatever is under the spotlight. You can use these to emphasise an important
picture, painting, sculpture or whatever else you wish to bring attention to.

either a primary light source or a secondary light source. Using a pendant light as secondary lighting adds a unique effect

ample lighting without getting in the way as you walk around.
