Why was this thread closed? http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/motorhome-chat/7509-smart-towing.html We were just discussing why a SMART could be towed and the answers were totally relevant. I certainly have no intention of getting personal as I was answering from hands-on experience of stripping a Smart.I apologise if it came over as such. Forget the tuning aspect. The fact is that the Getrag gearbox is an electrically operated Manual gearbox. It can be operated in full "auto" under the control of the ECU or manual modes. Change the electronic actuators for linkages (clutch and gearchange) and you'll have yourself a totally manual 'box. I made the same mistake in thinking the SMART of that era was a fully auto gearbox in the true sense of the word when I initially bought one. There are no torque converters etc involved...hence it can be towed on an "A" Frame with no problem. My question is.... can other fully automatic cars be towed.I know my RV cannot and there are warnings to disconnect the propshaft if recovery is required by towing..... Steve.
