Several of the Clone Troopers had a R&R day, so we went to check out a pod race.
After the race we were allowed to go and talk to some of the racers. One racer was complaining about needing a new pod racer.
He couldn't decide whether to buy a Racer with a high top speed but poor acceleration,
PODRACER WITH SPEED
or one with lots of torque and a fast acceleration but a poor top speed.
PODRACER WITH TORQUE
He turned to me and asked my opinion on the subject.
“I’d buy the second one because it cost a lot less" I replied, "and after all, torque is cheap.”
