Torque Figures

  1. Anyone got any idea how much Torque this thing would have?
     
  2. Re: Torque Figures

    A lot
     
  3. Re: Torque Figures

    Yeah I couldn't have guessed.....

    Does someone actually know?
     
  4. Re: Torque Figures

    I do.

    A lot.
     
  5. Re: Torque Figures

    It can't possibly have a lot of torque because it has a 2 litre 4 cylinder. Torque comes from low reving high displacement engines. My vette has only 205 hp. but 290 torque. That is probably a lot more than this car has. Its power probably kicks in at over 8000 rpm.
     
  6. Re: Torque Figures

    To get 0 - 60 in 2.7 seconds it can't have low torque, but you aer right the smaller engines usually have mor epower adn they rev higher, but even still this car, I doubt it's low.

    And the stats are wrong for those who haven't noticed.
    look at the rpm for power, at 0 rpm, how the heel does that work??

    'how the hell' does that work......

    I guess by hopes and dreams it will get pushed or dragged along by gusts of winds making it go 2.7 sec 0-60 <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> or it just could be a typo but I like the other theory better
     
  8. Re: Torque Figures

    nah i think just cos it's so light, so it doesn't need so much force to get it going
     
  9. Re: Torque Figures

    this car is nearby perfect.
     
  10. Re: Torque Figures

    When i think abuot it, the turbo's will probably give it a lot of torque. i think it would be between 400 and 600Nm
     
  11. Re: Torque Figures

    well becuse of the turbo's and small motor size it has less than 500 lb./feet of torque. but that is all that is needed for a car that light.
     
  12. Re: Torque Figures

    It depends if this is a revvy race camshaft engine with less boost or a lazier streetable camshaft with high boost, my bet is the later as its cheaper to engineer.

    My estimate is 600-650Nm (450 ft.lbs) at around 5000rpm (maybe 4500rpm) and 512hp at 7000-7500rpm. Redline is unlikely to be more than 8000-8500rpm for a 2000cc inline four.

    I bet it would be on full boost by 3500rpm, so this would not be a bad road car at all!

     
  13. Re: Torque Figures

    plenty.
     
  14. Re: Torque Figures

    As a high-revving 4 cylinder, it wouldn't make outrageous amounts of torque. It would still be very impressive though <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  15. Re:

    It's probably got heaps of torque, just look at the 300 hp Mitsubishi EVO VII that's also a two litre turbo powered engineand it's got 400 pound feet of torque
