Default Re: Bottom crank jack shaft.

most big rigs have more than 400 hp stock. i don't know what you are arguing, i know what torque is and the unit used to express torque has nothing to do with the concept of horse power. horse power is the rate at which work is done. my original argument was that torque means nothing without rpm, and that is true because the amount of work done depends on both torque and rpm. you can have a ton of torque and very little rpm, and you will not get much work done in a certain amount of time. tug of war is a match of traction and torque. hp is what really matters in an engine because you can use gearing to get either more torque or speed, can we agree on that?
some people say that a motorbike defeats the purpose of a bike. i tell them to get a flintstone's car.
