I have been, and I'm sorry to say, I still think that I'm right. I get your point about bringing it up in the RPM's quicker, and I understand the concept of 3.73:1 ratio (driveshaft spins 3.73 times for every once the wheels turn, motor spins more according to tranny gear ratios), but RWTQ/RWHP differ from FWTQ/FWHP because of several factors, and I think one of them is the rear diff gear ratio. RWTQ/RWHP is how much force the wheels are putting to the ground, and if you're gonna go faster, you need more force to the ground, therefore when you're going faster because of gears, MY belief is that your putting more power to the ground, i.e. power=TQ/HP.
Seriously though, this debate could last forever. I guess it's all in how you look at it. I have yet to see any dyno results proving this, though I hven't reall looked.
