Dick McCord, the principle design engineer of the Borg Warner T-56 and now Keisler's chief engineer, demonstrated shifting of the T45-RS on the Test Stand machine. The Test Stand is one of the original machines from Muncie Transmission plant used in the '90s. It has a large servo motor that runs the transmission as high as 6000 rpm. Notice the safety shield. The Test Stand also has a full computer control and data collection system, and the machine is designed to run 24/7 and record the shift quality and transmission performance.
