Torque

Why are all these builds based on RWHP? Torque wins drag races. Torque tows the loads. Horsepower is just something for ricers to brag about. I want torque builds.

Wherever I see RWHP numbers... I see roughly the same torque numbers.

What? So are you saying gain in RWHP is about the same as torque numbers? I'd have to disagree and say it depends on the mod.

Sure torque will get you off the line but horsepower is what you really need once you get going.

Actually torque gets you off the line. Horsepower wins races. You can alter torque with gearing. Horsepower is horsepower.

Got questions about your 6.0?

No that's not what I was saying. What I posted makes no sense now looking back at it lol.
But I did NOT Mean that a 500 rwhp truck will have 500 torque.

The trouble is the dyno measures torque and then you do a calculation to figure out HP.

Horsepower = (Torque x Engine Speed)/5252.

Derived from:
Torque being a circular or twisting force
HP being a contrived unit of equivalent work performed
1 HP = 550 lb-ft / sec
6.28 rad per revolution (2 Pi) and 60 seconds in 1 minute.
1 HP = (550 lb-ft x 1 rad / 1 sec) x (1 rev / 2 Pi rad) x 60 sec / 1 min)

So you see that torque at various RPM gives different results. No torque up top and you don't go very fast, or you break things getting there.
