Does the tranny or any parts connected to the tranny turn with different vehicle speeds?

The input shaft turns at the same rpm as the engine. The output shaft spins at a different speed. Say you are turning 2000 rpm with a 2.15 first gear ratio. That means that the output shaft is turning 4300 rpms. This allows you to multiply the torque of the engine to get the vehicle moving easier. Ever want to test this try to take of in your highest gear and see what happens.

The transmission is linked to your engine RPM, the higher that is, the faster the transmission spins. that means at 3000 rpm you're spinning the same, wether you're in 1st gear or 5th gear.
