I'd prefer to keep it as BMEP and then forces (mass and acceleration).
A quick read on BMEP
Thanks for the explanation and link. Guess it is still going to be mysterious since people in general can't get to a consensus on how to rate stuff.
Now wouldn't it be interesting if there were some standards on how drivetrain companies rate how much ft/lbs of torque their gears could withstand?
Back to topic - The approx specs would be:
HP : ~1000 CHP holding ability
RPM : ?????
Weight : ~540g
Length : OEM standard
Material : ????
Bolts : ????
I know you guys can't give more accurate info until you get your hands on some prototypes, but maybe update the first post with some better specs? Knowing TiC and 3MI, these things should be pretty cool. But as you've said pretty pictures and numbers are awesome.
Hopefully soon I will be ordering some more stuff from TiC and can talk to you guys about getting a cow sticker to throw onto my skidplate.
