Terribly dumb. When I first began reading, I thought, "OK", let's go with total net torque rating, why not, considering the merger of different powertrain technologies.
I was expecting lb-ft. Car guys know "torques".
What are Newtons? And meters.... well, meters are slightly longer than yards, I think those are used in the Canadian football league. So if the force is distributed over a larger area, does that mean in Newton Yards it would be less??? Are Newton Yards related to Camden Yards?
