I didn't see anything relating bore and stroke to torque. I found no way to calc backwards from top speed down to engine and gearing requirements. Perhaps for someone more experienced than myself, the linkages could be made, but not for me.
Seems I just need to do my homework and link everything together. Perhaps I'll have a better understanding.
I did find the inclusion of formulas for calculating blood alcohol level sort of....I don't know....maybe it was included for alcohol powered rigs.
This book...and the others, went into the reasoning behind the different formulas and gave some good examples.
It would be a good tutorial for someone wanting to learn about the design of and engine and the limitations in a design.
