overdrive

listen to the pronunciation of overdrive
İngilizce - İngilizce
A gear, on an automobile, higher than the normal top gear
A state of heightened activity
{v} to drive too hard or fast
The overdrive in a vehicle is a very high gear that is used when you are driving at high speeds
drive or work too hard; "The teacher is overworking his students"; "Overdriving people often suffer stress"
Generally a small auxiliary gearbox, usually mounted behind the car's main gearbox or attached to the differential, giving another gear in addition to the other three or four speeds in the main transmission
Any gearset in which the output shaft turns faster than the input shaft Overdrive gears are used in most modern transmissions because they reduce engine rpm and improve fuel economy Occasionally, a separate gearbox with an overdrive gearset is coupled to a conventional transmission
(Otomotiv) An optional special gear that allows the rear wheels to turn faster than the engine. This lowers fuel consumption during sustained high-speed driving on freeways
An optional special gear that allows the rear wheels to turn faster than the engine This lowers fuel consumption during sustained high-speed driving on freeways
If you go into overdrive, you begin to work very hard or perform a particular activity in a very intense way. In the courtroom everybody went into overdrive, assuming that there might well be a verdict soon
A circuit that boosts signal and/or adds distortion
An optional gear that decreases engine speed by permitting the wheels to turn faster than the engine Overdrive increases an engine's fuel efficiency
a high gear used at high speeds to maintain the driving speed with less output power the state of high or excessive activity or productivity or concentration; "Troops are ready to go into overdrive as soon as the signal is given"; "Melissa's brain was in overdrive"
make use of too often or too extensively
the state of high or excessive activity or productivity or concentration; "Troops are ready to go into overdrive as soon as the signal is given"; "Melissa's brain was in overdrive"
a high gear used at high speeds to maintain the driving speed with less output power
{f} overwork; work or drive someone too hard; use excessively or too often
A transmission in which the highest gear ratio is less than a one-to-one ratio This means the drive shaft turns faster than the engine crankshaft The overdrive feature saves fuel and, because the engine runs slower, engine wear and noise are reduced
drive or work too hard; "The teacher is overworking his students"; "Overdriving people often suffer stress
A unit with a planetary gearset which turns the drive shaft faster than the transmission output shaft Sometimes the overdrive is an additional gearbox which is mounted in the driveline Normally the final drive ratio is 1: 1; but the overdrive makes it less (e g , 0 87: 1) The overdrive can reduce gas consumption at sustained high-speed driving, engine noise, and engine wear Also called "overdrive transmission "
To drive too hard, or far, or beyond strength
A gear set in which the output shaft rotates faster than the input shaft
A gear on an automobile
{i} gear that provides drive shaft speed greater than engine shaft speed (Motor Vehicles) ; state of high or intense activity
an Intel CPU that increases the speed of the original CPU There are overdrive chips for most 486 and Pentium PCs
From the Ford Buyer's Digest of New Car Facts for '59: "Overdrive - The transmission for the man who does a lot of long distance driving Reduces driver fatigue dramatically through lowering engine speeds Automatic fourth gear enables engine to 'loaf' at about 30 per cent fewer rpm's than at the same speed in conventional gear In effect, engine runs at 35 miles per hour while the car is doing 50 This translates directly intogas savings and greatly prolonged engine life Simple push-pull handle locks out overdrive gear for maximum engine braking effect " Overdrive was available on Mercury cars through 1958 It was available on Ford cars through 1967 Overdrive was not paired with every engine or every car line

OverDrive Processor
{i} Pentium microprocessor produced by Intel that can be installed on a motherboard and used to upgrade Intel 486 processors (Computers)
Mexican overdrive
The neutral gear when used while a vehicle is moving, especially when it is used to save fuel or to coast down hill faster than a vehicle can go in gear. (This is illegal in some places.)

He shifted his car out of gear, at the top of the hill, and coasted down in Mexican overdrive.
