Keith, buddy, not sure I agree with you at all about Torque v Power. Here are a few equations for you:

(SI Units)
Torque = Force x Perpendicular Distance
Power = Force x Velocity
Force = Mass x Acceleration

(Imperial Units)
And Power = Torque x RPM/5252

To my understanding, it works that Torque gives you Acceleration, whilst Power gives you Top Speed...

But anyway, more interestingly (and with complete sincerity) is the word "dose" (in American English) the same as "does" (in British English)?.. Or is this just a little typo? You catch me out sometimes when I'm reading your posts! To me, "dose" fits in the sentence "a dose of salts", "a dose of insulin", "a dose of morphine", etc. etc.

I'm honestly not 'taking the piss', I just struggle to translate sometimes! (I know, for example, 'color' = 'colour' and 'center' = 'centre', etc. but this is a new one to me.)
