Yamaha still use crossplane crankshafts in their I4 MotoGP engines due to a torque advantage at very high revs en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cro…
In the late 90s Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz and Maybach, was working on a 12-litre 24-cylinder engine for Maybach cars, which would have made around 800 hp and 1200 Nm (885 lb-ft) of torque. autoevolution.com/news/wh…
Today I learned that there is a natural speed limit to fastballs. This limit is little more than 100mph due to the torque required of the human body. The amount of torque needed to throw in excess of the century mark is greater than the amount of force the ulnar collateral ligament can withstand. popularmechanics.com/adve…
The turntable in a microwave oven switches directions on each use because it is easier for the motor to build up torque (like getting a running start) in the opposite direction, instead of pushing right against the previous load. nytimes.com/2013/04/16/sc…
An engineer designed a 3 in-lb torque wrench that was emailed to an astronaut that became the first object designed on Earth to be manufactured in space. nasa3d.arc.nasa.gov/detai…
That, contrary to a popular belief, a locked differential in a car does NOT split torque 50/50 between the wheels. It is, in fact, an open differential that does exactly that youtube.com/watch?v=_HOa0…
The differential mechanism on cars is what allows each will to rotate freely from the other, while still providing power to both. When one wheel is spinning too slowly, the differential will keep driving the other without skidding. No torque is lost, and tires aren’t shredded when you turn! geek.com/geek-cetera/a-br…
Today I learned of an engine that put out only 600HP but at 39,000 ft/lb of torque. youtube.com/watch?v=HzFzp…
A 68 mustang was converted into an electric muscle car, with 800 hp, 1800 lb of torque, a top speed of 174.3 mph, and 0-60 in 2.4 seconds. zombie222.com/zombie-spec…
Today I learned of the Cadillac Sixteen which is a full size luxury car nearly 19 feet long with a 13.6 litre V-16 engine which is said to produce 1000 horsepower with an equal amount of torque en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/C…
The worlds largest Internal Combustion engine (the WΓ€rtsilΓ€-Sulzer RTA96-C, which is a 25,480L 14cyl motor) produces 108,920HP/80,080KW and 7.6mill NM/5.6mill lbfΒ·ft of torque at 102rpm. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W%C…
The diesel engines powering modern container ships are the size of a small apartment building, have 14 cylinders of 1,820 liters of displacement each, and make 5.6 million ft-lbs of torque. emma-maersk.com/engine/Wa…
; When one of the first aircraft carriers was designed (HMS Argus), the superstructure was postponed on the starboard side due to the tendency of propeller driven aircraft to veer to the left on takeoff due to torque. This arrangement has not changed since. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS…
Today I learned of Multi-Jackbolt Tensioners (superbolts). Rather than needing to tighten one large bolt, MJTs can achieve up to 20 million pounds of force and greater. Requiring only hand-held tools, such as torque wrenches or air/electric impacts. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mul…
Trucks use diesel engines and not petrol (or gasoline) engines because diesel produces more torque than petrol. Because diesel combustion must be done in a certain way, it requires a specific length of the crankshaft which makes it produce more torque but at lower RPM. rjmason.com/questions/Die…
The typical aim of hanging is to get the body moving quickly enough after the trap door opens to produce between 1,000 and 1,250 foot-pounds of torque on the neck when the noose jerks tight health.howstuffworks.com/…
In 1965, a drag racer built a car called Quad Al that incorporated four WWII surplus V12 fighter engines, developing approx. 12,000 hp. Its engines started, but the car never ran because the creator could not afford the custom gearboxes and clutches to handle the massive torque. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/A…
Chrysler built a 500hp motorcycle with 525 ft:lb torque and a V10 Dodge Viper engine. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/D…
Nuts and bolts tighten clockwise because a right handed person generates more torque in that direction. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clo…
The rate of change of torque is known as Rotatum en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rot…
This Italian WWII fighter had one wing 8 inches longer than the other, to counteract propeller torque en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac…
Why boats have the steering wheel on the right side of the boat... Boat propellers turn clockwise and hulls used to be designed in such a way that when there was torque on the prop, the right side of the boat would rise up. straightdope.com/columns/…
Someone is making a multiplayer remake of Zelda OoT and Majoras Mask with the Torque engine.

Looks like it's just one guy. Just so everyone knows, it's not me, and this isn't my work or my website, I just thought it was pretty neat.

I loaded it up and ran around for a few minutes. Still in a pretty rough alpha stage, but it has promise.
