In the April 2014 article on the nitrous injected ZR1, it is stated that the peak RWHP is 769 and the peak RWTQ is 1063 ft-lb.  Since HP is calculated based on the measured torque,HP=(RPM/5252)Torque, this would appear to indicate that the peak torque occurs at about 3800 rpm,769/1063(5252),and drops rapidly after that.  This does not seem to be typically of vette engines but may be the result of when the nitrous is applied. Could you please clarify.
