6 speed parallel gearbox

LIKES

This is my new 6 speed gearbox. I call it parallel because of the position of the red selectors. It uses unusual mechanism, because every red selector selects only 1 gear, not 2 as usual. Thanks to this simplicity, it is very reliable and can work under high torque. You can easily drive it remotely.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
The instructions are 95% complete, but I could not add some parts in LDD.
1) You must of course put the red selectors inside.
2) You must add a rubber band or a non lego spring to the mechanism. 
3) You must add 6 soft lego springs to each selector. You can see it in the video.
