This is a Hone-o-Drive, which I suppose is too large to fit in the torsion box, but I think I see in the article in one of the pics that it was developed using a Pinto, which suggests, hey, maybe there is a chance.

This posted for the benefit of all the people who periodically post about longer gearing.
