Yea I know that's a cute saying, but then a 700 lb/ft of tq turbo diesel truck would win races against Ferrari's. When defending lower HP cars, this is nice marketing, although they tend to have low tq as well, lol. I'd argue it's easily an equal formula, making tons of tq I one thing, making it quicker is HP, and acceleration is dependent on both.
I think Jorgenson's youtube video is similar (can't see at the office), but it is rather impressive what some of those diesel trucks can do at the drag strip. It's not unheard of to see a monster 5000+ pound truck launch into the 10s and even 9s. Pretty fun way to embarass some supercars if you're clever =P.
