puretech tuning

Post by Cactused » Fri Feb 09, 2018 5:59 pm

well, looks like someone's getting very good gains on the 110 engine:

thought the gearbox was only good for 150lb/ft though? :shock:
tempting though - 150hp would make it fly!

It's torque that makes the difference, not maximum bhp

I've sent them an enquiry.
included question about clutch torque and cost.

just waiting for reply.

It quotes 195lb/ft..and i read somewhere (on this forum?) the clutch on the 5sp in the Cactus is rated at 160lb/ft..which would be an issue. 6spd in 2008 130 puretech etc..

Writing torque as lb/ft is exposing your mechanical ignorance...

That was a tad rude, its more likely to be showing age.
We all used ft/lbs before we got taken over by them Europeans even if Newton was English👍

Hmm - its not usage of lbs or feet or newtons that my comment was aimed at ... you can see what I'm driving at if you google"Torque " and "Surface Tension" .

Fraid not.
KN/M or millinewtons/sq.M
Torque-Angular momentum or surface tension-surface stress can't see what the connection is in this context.
Not sure what your getting at.
I suppose that surface tension can be considered as Force per unit length and can be applied to solids as well, but that's a bit out there.

how so? I still use that metric, Nm mean very little to me.
