Exactly, you figure that if you only allow the throttle to open 65% torque and HP would be reduced by 65%...
But what I think happens in the simulation is that the "revs" are reduced. For the most part car's TQ and HP meet at 5252rpm, after 5252rpm hp increases and tq drops. Find a car that revs relativley low 6000 or so. Start reducing it's "throttle opening", you will see that TQ is affected around 85%. Now grab a Ferrari F2010 and drop it's throttle to 50%, you will see ~50% hp but TQ stays at 205 ft-lbs. This is because the F2010 revs to 18K so dropping that in half (9000rpms) keeps the power curve over that 5252rpm sweet spot.
The 5252rpm sweet spot doesn't apply to every car, but it is a reference point.

Yeah, it will most likely be late Saturday.

Sure Byran, the more the merrier, just send a PSN friend request to cabrita309. I will release the official date around Friday.
