It's not as simple as that.

^^ Well no its not as simple, but thats the basics. I just finished a chapter on this in physics... Torque is the energy something has to move in a circular motion.

On a side note, I just went to advanced auto parts and picked up some oil to change the oil in my truck sometime soon. Be the first automotive thing I have done other then rotating my tires, lol.

Right now I'm in the process of buying a truck identical to this one

(2002 S-10 Xtreme)
Cept' the one I'm hoping to get doesn't have rims that big, the custom tail light or the hard top bed cover.

Lol exactly the truck I'm looking at actually has a aftermarket spray in bed liner, but after I recover financially from buying it I aim to put about $500-800 for a nicer sound system
