RE: [DMCForum] Urp -- Now I Remember Why Gave Up On The Forum



Bill, man... don't bother. You're just adding fuel to these guys.
Don't spark the argument. I don't wanna see you leave again. Your
knowledge is too valuable to the rest of us to be lost over more
bullshit bickering. Don't argue. Some things will never be resolved.
Don't give up on the Forum.

      Oh please...
     
      Horsepower is a chimera. Remove either torque or RPM from the
      equation, and it vanishes. It ceases to exist. "Horsepower" is
nothing
      more than an _expression_ of a certain amount of torque produced
at a
      certain number of engine revolutions.
     
      Did you not take high school algebra?
     
      How can I make it any plainer: Torque is measured independent
of
      RPM's. Torque is certainly measured independent of
"horsepower".
      Likewise RPM's are measured independent of torque or
"horsepower". But
      I absolutely defy you to merely express "hosepower" without
both, much
      less try to measure it as some sort of independent force.
Can't be done.
     
      Urp.

Just shut

      It's more sport than the Delorean or your damn Lincolns will
ever be.
