    There's no other reason to have them.

    id say with that much torque it would be on the verge of undrivable

    it's amazing to me that it takes a car 1040lb/ft of torque and over 800hp to do 235 mph, but an aircraft the same size will do 235mph with almost half the power :o

    You know the TCS wont let it get anywhere near its max torque to the wheels.

    why does that amaze you? put that much hp in a boat and it will do 120mph. it's all about resistance

    interesting

    was talking to a nerd friend about stuff like the mile and other top speed events and he suggested getting something like those wheels covers made

    why does the drag on a wheel and mechanical friction equate to double the force vs. the induced drag of a wing?

    hard to imagine the transmission can handle that torque.

    power must be limited the first few gears

    because the friction involved with a car is much greater :dunno:
