Video: Do you know the difference between Torque and Horsepower?

If, like me, you nod along in the pub pretending to know exactly what the difference between Horsepower and Torque is, but you don't even know where to start, let me relieve you of that burden.

I've spent too long being a petrolhead and not knowing things that other petrolheads all seem to know. This is the main one that seems to separate me from the rest, so it is time to learn, once and for all.

I need a tutorial video to be entertaining if I am going to learn about it, so I can't watch a straight up university professor telling me the difference between torque and horsepower. God no, I need so bloody loud noises and a funny host… enter Donut Media! Still my favourite stuff on Youtube.

Here is the full tutorial to educate you:

Did you already know the difference between the two or has this video enlightened you?

Let me know in the comments!
