Post didn't know where to ask this but HP and TQ relationship?

Okay I konw that the formula for hp is TQ X RPM X 5.(some long decimal)=HP

SO after saying that couldn't you have a low reving engine with alot of Tourque meaning low HP numbers but gear it so the wheels get more RPM in them.. so say if you used a desiel with 2.23 gears or something like that... if the thing was a touque monster wouldn't your rear wheel HP actually be higher than your engine HP and your rear wheel TQ lower than the engine TQ... so then does HP make all the difference or could you have an all TQ engine and still perform..
