Simply put from Horsepower/Torque Race Perspective, Torque is the low end power of the car.

Build a motor for low end torque and it will usually take care of horsepower.

Big Blocks Often tend to be good friends with torque.
Torque is often created from an excessive stroke on big blocks, thus there non high reving attributes.
My 1968 Oldsmobile 98 Weighs 4580 and is slow as hell (off the line) but has around 500ft/pds of torque and will roast tires like no tomorrow. (thats with a 2.83 diff)

something ricers dont have. helps acceleration. often found in V8s and trucks ranging from a Ford F150 (with V8) to a Peterbilt(WAY over 2200FT LBs here, dun mess with a semi, it can literally rip yo car in half) and some SUVs. known to cause wheelstands, burnouts, powerslides(NOT drifting, totally differant, drifting is E-brake derives, powersliding is just sheer torque), donuts and good ET times.
shit dude, that thing aint got no torque, im afraid i cant pink slip it so i dun humilitate u too badly...with a semi

Torque = (Horsepower * 5252) / RPM
It is better to make torque at high rpm than at low rpm, because you can take advantage of *gearing*.
