Re: dusted by a diesel

	Sometimes it can be the torque that gets you. FWIW, Chrysler has revealed
that they now have a diesel engine (for their truck division) that puts out
250 horsepower and 780 lb/ft of torque!  That seriously messes with the old
(torque)x(rpm)=hp equation.....
	BTW, I still remember being outrun in Austria a few years back. We were doing
115 mph on the autobahn and had to pull over for a Chrysler minivan -- with
"turbodiesel" stenciled across the back end.  :-(
