Hey JD, thanx for the repost of that, I learned alot and have since developed a formula to calculate 0-60 mph time that will be within 5% of the true numbers.
I noticed something about those gears. The torque seems to be kinda on the small side so taking the tire size of a tempo (215/70R/14) with a redline of 6000 rpm, that gear will only last to 29.6 mph, and that is being a little generous.
And also to the texan, torque is directly related to acceleration but horsepower gets you the top speed.
