    In a game called vdrift I made a nisann r34 gtr with about 20000lfbt of torque form 4k-9k revs. I reduced the drag coeffecient to 0.001 and it easy passes 300 mph.
    Win.

    EDIT: the game crashes when i reach 350

    I have Scuderia Ferrari tattooed on my heart. I approve.

    But yeah it kinda goes against the torque statement. Not entirely though.

    Except when Ford really wants to beat them.

    EDIT: Or Porsche.

    EDIT 2: Or in the F1 WDC, anybody from 1979-2000.

    What unit are you measuring your torque in? To be pedantic there's no such thing as more torque than power.. or vice-versa.. they're measured using totally different units and they're two different concepts.

    Torque obviously wins though...
