“Horsepower sells cars, but torque wins races.” – Carroll Shelby

In physics, Newton’s Second Law states: Net force acting upon an object causes acceleration directly proportional to the net force and inversely proportional to the mass.

Guess what, not only are we finally getting movement with Broadband Stimulus, we are getting acceleration. Several BIP and BTOP projects have been successfully awarded from Round 1 and we just completed the Round 2 Application process for many more. The net force is finally greater than the mass. We have a lot of work to do in the next few years. Many engineers I have been meeting with lately question if we can get it all done by the deadlines set by the government.

Does our industry have the horsepower to get it all done on time?

Or more correctly, do we have the torque?
