There's your answer then, more torque higher in the rev range equals more power.

It's called a gearbox Dan, have a look at one does and what selecting the right ratios for your application can do (I liaised directly with Holinger when having issues with the rev drop to 6th so revised my ratios). Let me guess, you've got the standard ratio box and have upped the power considerably and think that it's just as good for drivability. How's your rev drop between gears now, are you maintaining the power band?

I've posted footage of my car on the road for everyone to see, again I'm not hiding anything; very smooth power delivery IMHO - I just think you're intent on finding fault with my car now Dan.

Seems quite streetable to me Dan, I hadn't driven it in a while so my clutch control was slightly off but that's the only excuse I'll make.

No I'm not Matt it just seems certain people like and want low down torque when it suits them

Matt I didn't mean your car doesn't drive well I ment low down drivebility in turns of torque. The way your engine produces torque/ power shows its speced focused on drag racing. We're im after as much as an all rounder as I can get hence why I've got a borg Warner efr9180 and not the biggest rear housing

Lol, I had a feeling 'low down torque' would slip into this somewhere.
As Matt said, a trusty torque multiplier fixes that.

Well that can't be aimed at me because my engine was always built to rev.
I've posted:
My Dyno Plot
The Graph of WHP - Weight vs Terminal Speed - ET
My Data Log
Footage on The Road
Footage on The Track

I've answered everything open and honestly as best I can, the car is what it is mate; if you don't believe Owens about the power claim, take it up with them because I feel like no matter what I say you'll move on to the next thing; you're just intent on picking fault and when you can't you move on. Sorry but you're quite transparent now.

My focus has always been on drivability Dan, first and foremost it's a road car.
The fact that power is further up the rev range can only really be seen as a possible issue in 1st gear when not launching.

Seems like you are the common denominator.

I have been asked by Dan to post my power figures and quite honestly I don't know but it weighs 1520kg and best terminals are 164mph. So what does that work out at?

If the chart is correct if your car is 1540kg without driver so say roughly 1600kg to run a 164mph you must have 1200whp does that sound about right jeff? Do you mind telling us what turbo and what pressure that's at?

The turbo is far from standard so not possible to state. It is a hybrid designed by Abbey Motorsport. I believe it peaks at 2.2 bar on a run.

You need to add your weight Jeff, it's total weight, not just car weight.

I'll have it weighed at the Jap Show and post the results.

If you want to join us on the Stand you need to hurry up as the shop is closing soon.
