**What is lbf in torque?**

A pound-foot (lbf·ft) is a unit of torque or moment of force (a pseudovector). One pound-foot is the torque created by one pound force acting at a perpendicular distance of one foot from a pivot point. Torque is derived from the SI units of Length, Mass, and Time.

**Is 400 ft-lbs of torque a lot?**

Having 400 pounds of torque down low means you have more horsepower down low. Having 400 pounds of torque up high means you have even more horsepower then you had down low.

## Is lb and lbf the same?

“Lbf” refers to the gravitational force placed by a matter on the Earth’s surface, while “lb” deals with the measurement of force. A pound force equals the product of 1 pound and the gravitational field. “Lb” and “lbf” are basically similar with each other since they both involve the same force.

**Is 300hp enough?**

Right between 200 and 300 horsepower is the sweet spot for many drivers. Be cautious with models that approach 300 horsepower, unless the vehicle is a heavy truck or another large model.
