Ok this one just popped into my head anyone ever heard of a cvt being rigged up in a ski? I mean it would allow for higher prop speeds right? Now trust me I'm no fan of extra parts that aren't really necessary. Or is there some magic formula saying that after a certain degree the prop speed decreases efficiency? Now I don't have any ambition to go out and try to do it but I'm just thinking aloud to see if there's something I'm missing. Or if someone knows of it being tried. And I personally like the idea and throtle response of direct drive but like I said I was just thinking out loud..
