As I look at specs, it gives you horsepower@rpms. I was just curious as to the relationship with these to. Does the higher the rpm go the more horsepower? Is that why when you race you want higher rpms? Or am I wrong? If so, please correct me. :)

Thanks! :D

TR, you participated in this thread: http://corvetteactioncenter.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=20233. Look again for a recent reply of mine. ;)

I'd just like to keep similar threads together. (Call me anal-retentive, but I'm really compulsive/obsessive.) ;)

But since we're already here... :L I noticed before that someone told you about checking out the site "How Stuff Works" (http://biz.howstuffworks.com/index.htm). Evidently you missed that one; check out How Horsepower Works (http://biz.howstuffworks.com/horsepower.htm?printable=1), now. ;)

Ken, I was just reading that thread, and I'm afraid that I don't see what you're referring to. What post exactly? Maybe a quick quote? Thanks! :D
