So my question is: where does the 550 fall in on this curve? Is it a low rever like the 650? Or a high rever like the 525? Where does the torque start to really kick in.
I would love to pickup another tractor pulling rig.
What kind of 525 revs to 14000 rpms?

The KTM with it's long stroke engine doesn't go to 10000 either.
