[DMCForum] Re: Martin's HP

At how many RPM's?

If that little French wonder car is so powerful, Freightliner had
better be quivering in their boots.

Uneducated layperson is going to look at your post and assume the
Venturi is more powerful than a transfer tracter producing "only" 400
HP. Yet it does so in the 1500 RPM range -- more than enough to move
80,000 lbs of over the road freight. Can your wonder car do that?

High rev'ing HP is chump change against bottom end HP.

Ready for that tractor pull yet?
