    Rear axle torque loads:

    (a) Engine Torque: 545 foot-pounds

    (b) Torque Converter Multiplication factor: 2.2:1

    (c) Transmission First Gear Ratio: 1.82:1

    (d) Rear Axle Ratio: 4.56:1

    Multiply the loads:

    (a) X (b) X (c) X (d) = Rear axle torque load

    545 X 2.2 X 1.82 X 4.56 = 9950.74 foot-pounds

    no wonder the cars launch like that...interesting GM article but it should apply:

    Use that formula for a 727(2.45) in a 3500 car and you see why a Dana 60 was factory in a lot of the Mopar muscle cars. Why does the lost rearend syndrome always seem to happen to the Camaro? Lucky I guess! LOL
