Re: Not much torque...

  1. This amount of torque this car has is in direct relation to the practicality this car is meant to have on the road - just enough. This car is only a byproduct of the 333 racecars.
    And you criticised the torque without any mention of the horsepower. Please name one of your precious Lambos with a Normally Aspirated powerplant that puts out 160 - 170 hp/litre. That sort of output is simply awesome.<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. Ferrai knows exactly wut they are doin, look at the past, do you think they are stupid about racing. If they needed more, they would have more.<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Who the hell cares if it has enough torque or not??? Mind only if you're the owner...
     
  4. i agrre with lngnfltr. ferrari is named after its horsepower, not its torque. thats why its embelem is a horse <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  5. I know a man who owns an sp and trust me there is more then enough torque to make this car go
     
  6. Not much torque...

    for a 650 hp car 330 ft/lbs isn't a hell of a lot...
     
  7. well duh its a 4 liter engine that revs to 11000. its to small to have alot of torque with out a trubo or supercharger
     
  8. yeah, uh hmm.<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. Its a ferrari, they don't make torque. Wich is why they'll never touch a Lamborghini.
     
  10. It's a Ferrari, if they wanted torque, they'd make it. But they don't need it, because a Lamborghini would break down anyway. But oh wait, when's the last time you saw a Lamborghini win the 24 hours of LeMans? ... Waiting ... Still waiting ... Yeah, exactly. Don't make unsubstantiated claims about something you know nothing about.
     
  11. Do you actually know the relationship between torque and horses?<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. I think Ferreri know what they are doing. Lamborghini has a great racing heritage, o, wait, they suck at racing!

    well it's enough to make this car faster than anything you'll ever drive.
     
  14. well thats true....
     
  15. It still held it's own when it mattered. It didn't really need the torque to stay on top.
     
  16. Shut up, ferraris rule over lamborghini, how much wins does lamborghini have over ferrari in the real world you #%$got.
     
  17. I realize some of (mainly the intelligent ones) already know this, but this car is alot like a grand prix car, most of which...no, all of which do not have high amounts of torque, but instead an engine that puts out about 700 hp ( somebody correct me if I'm wrong here) at high rpms, exactly like this engine. They are also extremely light, JUST LIKE THIS CAR. They don't need alot of torque to get the car up and moving because it's so light. It's like your precious Lamborghini having 700 lbs of torque, and 1400 hp coupled to the ability to take a corner very nicely(no offense to Lamborghini, I think they're awesome, but some people take it too far, it's not better than this car). And since this car is based on grand prix, those who have watched it and been at one of the races know just how fast those things can go. VERY FAST
     
  18. horsepower is torque multiplied by engine speed, so is irrelvant. notice how this engine turns really fast.
    you can increase the speed (more bangs per second)
    or you can increase the engine size size/ add boost (bigger bangs).... the result is exactly the same, horsepower.


     
  19. it creates 310ft-lb of torque @11000 rpm i would say that is amazing
    horsepower is a measure of work being done
    torque measures force
     
  20. torque is multiplied by engine speed??? what. what does that equal??? what a stupid statement. why did the guy on the first page say its good enough for the road, this isn't a road car, its a race car. what are some of you thinking.
