Hey

Does anyone know the round about conversion from power on the wheels to engine output for the 335?

Thanks

Don't forget to add another 10% or so for altitude losses.

Heh. Just to clarify, as a measure of work over time, horsepower is horsepower. There is no new and old for the units themselves (unlike things like USgallons vs imperial gallons), but rather the testing and reporting methods. Read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horsepo...ower_.28bhp.29

But once you have a value of horsepower, you can convert to kW by multiplying by 0.746.
