What is the ft/lbs translated to? I dont understand kg.
Torque (ft/lbs@rpm): 14.1kg/m@5200
What the hell is that?

It equals 102 ft/lbs of torque. 1 Kg is equal to 2.2 Lbs, and 1 m is equal to roughly 3.3 ft.

Torque is simply the resultant of Force * Distance.

lbs-ft
m-Kg
N-Kg
Dyne-cm

In drag racing Canadians still use 1/4 mile, we switched to meteric not that long ago (30 years? not quite sure) so even though Canada is offically meteric you will still see of things in Imperial.

We kinda got stuck with two systems b/c you bastards won't change ( ha ha J/K).

I wish we would all just use one system, and meteric is is hell of alot easier to use since in based on factors of 10.
