No, not at all. Horsepower is derived from Torque.

HP= (Torque in Ft/lb x RPM)/5250

So No it'* not weird at all!

EDIT: Boy i feel smart!

I think I gained a few IQ points!

This is really informative, it should be put in a science/physics magazine.

sry, but your formula is wrong, HP = torque in ft/lb x RPM / 5252

you put "/ 5250" it is "/ 5252"

i know 2 RPM isn't that much of a difference, but it is a difference
