    What's the percentage between WHP and BHP again?

    Horsepower to the Wheels vs. Horsepower at the Flywheel.

    depends on the car, usually around 15-20% loss is close, unless it's awd, 4wd, or a ford. :)

    awd still doesn't lose any more then 25%.

    and a ford doesnt lose alot, they are just overrated. loll.

    i believe the rule of thumb is 18% loss from the flywheel to the wheels. its not completely accurate but its close enough.
