chad for all u know ur spelling looks of a 10 yeard old rofl3.gif    sorry man had to say it lol just bustin ur chops



lol, that's why spelling isn't much of an indicator of a person's intellect or knowledge.  My spelling got alot better when I started browsing with firefox.  It underlines misspelled words in red as you type.

it does.  "alot", isn't really "supposed" to be used at all, whether you spell it "a lot" or "alot".  I don't bother much with spelling slang correctly.

oh yeah that, haha.  fire fox wouldn't catch that either since "suppose" is also a word.  it doesn't do any grammar correction obviously.  It's strickly spellin', but it helps.  It only does it in fields so obviously you don't see it in a post until you quote the person.  it's funny to see some posts just littered with red when you quote "certain" folks around here.

I'm not trying to wire brush your nuts here man, but no they aren't, and yes there is a definitive answer for a given car.


And once you've found said "right mix" you will have also found the definitive answer you just said didn't exist.


The initial question did not apply to any certain vehicle so there is no definitive answer.

Yes you will find an answer if you have a something to base it on like a car. If it's a heavy car I like to increase torque rather than rpm's.

That is a perfect example where torque will be more useful, a "torque" motor will drive a lot better than a "power" motor will in this situation.  

In a race of speed, the power wins, but in a competition of "what dirves better", the torque motor will be far better suited to the competition, unless ofcourse you like running at redline all the time.

The funny thing is if we all had super high hp and much torque stock this would'nt be a conversation.

for the record u dont gain hp, u gain the pulling feel of the more power, but ur ratio was right, its based on per 10. 1hp FEEL of pull is gained off per 10 pounds removed.

I hope you're not replying to my sarcastic reply.  The car weighs 900lbs lighter with 100 more hp and only 100blft less of torque of course it would win the race.  My dyslexic dog can figure that one out.

actually no i didnt, apparently a post was deleted by a member that typed something which i had typed that for, interesting rolleyes.gif   The person had said you gain 10 hp for every 100 pounds of wight and i typed that thing saying no u dont GAIN hp per say, but u do gain a faster car from removing weight.
