and torque doesn't exist without horsepower, what's your point?

how sweeping as usual.  What's low?  what's high?  what "pull"?

The only reason that high torque engines are used vs low torque/high
horsepower engines is because low RPM horsepower is more convenient than
high RPM horsepower.  There is no difference in the "power", just how
fast the engine has to turn when it's available. 

Don't lecture about horsepower- it looks like you're making up $hit
anyways. 

Horsepower was defined when someone realized that an average horse could
pull about 330 pounds one hundred feet in one minute out of a coal mine
shaft, not turning a wheel or whatever else BS you're spreading. 

Torque is nothing more than the measure of horsepower in relation to the
RPM at which it was achieved.
