    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Horsepower unless you’re talking about 0 to like 2 mph.

    Torque. Best for about the first 60' or 330' then you're going to need horsepower to get a good 660' time and will really need horsepower for a good 1320' time.

    Torque is great if you're a bus or truck driver.

    I recently read Toyota's new Direct Shift CVT transmission makes acceleration from stop faster.
