Friends ask me, how can I hit a driver like you do?
The answer is: Torque, baby, Torque!
Torque,also called disassociation,in which the hips and abdominal musels move forward the target as the upper body completes the back swing, provides a great deal of energy to the swing.
Next time when you watch Tigger on TV, just watch the torque of his, it is increditable.
Friends ask me, when you talke about Torque of a car, what do you mean?
Well, an engine’s output is rated in horsepower and torque. Torque is pulling power, and it’s best demonstrated as the grunt that gets you moving, while horsepower is what keeps you going.
Torque is the twisting force created in an engine by rotating parts; horsepower is the measurement of how fast torque is being used. Horsepower and torque work hand-in-hand, as horsepower is calculated from torque.
For the average buyer, torque shouldn’t be a deciding factor unless you know you’ll be towing or hauling heavy loads. And that’s where high-torque vehicles will thrive, driving while towing a trailer or maxing out cargo capacity. It will be easier to accelerate and sustain speed with a high-torque car in any situation, but especially with heavy loads.
High-performance cars can also produce gobs of torque that greatly aid in acceleration. That feeling of your eyeballs being sucked into the back of your head in a fast car during heavy right-foot pounding is an example of excessive torque.
