But Ummm, isn't Horsepower about how fast you can apply that torque? Torque is great. I am all for it but there is a reason why they don't run diesels in top fuel. You need horsepower, too. More RPMs mean more horsepower. F1 engines run about 18,000 rpm now. More rpms, more HP.
Yeah, but doesn't a Top Fuel Dragster do only about 1000 revolutions of the motor, the whole race? Drag Motors are REALLY High torque, low RPM if i'm not mistaken.
