    I respect this build and Nick ALOT. he is a true trailblazer.

    What does not sit well with me is estimating flywheel power numbers from chassis dyno results. It is a very abstract number, and you cannot confirm it short of pulling the engine and putting it on an engine dyno.
    But everyone likes these numbers as they are much bigger than at the tire.

    I find someone claiming a 630hp delorean a bit of a misnomer. Most people dont care to learn the difference between tire and flywheel power numbers, so they merge them together.

    I don't like some estimating engine from wheel power based on some "average" loss due to tranny/diff, but if they have a known loss from a Porsche 6speed on a Porsche, I think wouldn't be too far off with some other engine.

    In this case, you have a writer probably demanding a number and Nick did the best he could.

    All that being said, we all want a video of you side by side with Nick giving it all you got.

    I would love that too, and it will happen one day, but we live 2900kms apart and the border is closed right now.
