Remember the Electrogeeks rule of thumb... Gas horsepower= electric horsepower x 4.

Electric motors are rated for the horsepower they can produce continuously under load.
ICE's are rated for the maximum horsepower they can produce at the highest point on the power curve, under ideal conditions, while sitting on the bench.

Hehehe... If one of your facial lacerations leaves a small scar, you'll have a SCarlett.
