I put these links in an unrelated thread about hitches, but I thought those who wouldn't be interested in hitches (or the thread) might like to see them. I've you've wondered what exact a CVT is or how it works, click the youtube links. CVT technology has been around forever, snowmobiles had them in the 60's. But they used rubber belts that would burn and were controlled by centrifugal weights depending on engine speed. Automobile CVTs us a metal belt and the pulley diameters are computer controlled. Anyway, have a look. It's pretty cool stuff.
