Umm kinda but the thing is.... when the dyno is put on the rear wheels they wouldn't be able to tell your gearing unless they look at your tach right... so if they just when by rear wheel rpm... could you not increase your hp and decrese your tourque... I mean ricers do the opposite... they have tons of hp because of the rpm factor (can rev higher cuz of less recipicating mass) so they put real low gearing in from the factory so that the car doesn't stall (at least I think this is how it works..) isn't this also how ferraries with very little displacment but that turn over high revolutions end up getting tourque is by having the lower gears???? It does not so much make tourque but use the hp/rpm energy in a different way?
