Re: Fizzicks Question (no Audi content)

 Torque is rotational power, strenght whatever. It's what moves the car.
Horsepower is more of an energy speed rating. Hp is something like 33,000
feet /second or something (don't have my physics stuff in front of me) or
746 watts. In calculations for cars (don't have them in front of me) hp
and torque will be the same at 5252 rpm. Torque will fall off afterward
and power will go up. Something of an inverse relationship. Torque is a
power rating like N/m a lever ratio if you will. I send more out when I
find my papers.
