What is the difference between a standard manual trans and a dog box trans?
A dog box is the term for a transmission utilizing a dog engagement. A dog box can have either helical or spur gears or both.
Dog engagement are basically no more than cogs on a slider. The shifter pushes them into a receiver ring which engages the gear it is attached to. There is a separate dog and receiver for each gear in the transmission. On a racing transmission, there is a lot of "slop" (the gaps in the receiver are a lot larger than the teeth on the dog), which makes it easier to move into and out of the gears at higher RPMs without fully engaging the clutch.
