So ive been doing alot of research about gears and ratio on / off ASC. To my understanding, the higher the ratio, the more revolutions the bevel gear spins in order to make the sector gear complete 1 revolution. So for example, a 72:1 bevel gear will have to spin twice as much as a 36:1 bevel gear in order to produce 1 revolution of the sector gear.

So shouldn't the 36:1 gear have HIGHER torque than the 72:1, because it is able to produce more power? I just wanted to verify this to make sure I understand. Please do not flame my ass
