Long ago I had this fantasy while cruising a long, straight highway. Twist the throttle, and zoom from 70mph to 150mph in a couple of seconds.

What kinda torque, horsepower?

I ran the numbers.

*gads*, there's a lot of zeros following that big number...

Maybe 10 or 15 would still be fun. At Texas World back in the 70's would return back on the oval from the infield before turn 4 in third gear and then into fourth before the banking. Into fifth midway through turn 4 and then down the front straight . Was hitting 8000 rpm with 18/32 gearing. Good times.
