Not quite:

4) deterimes the speed at the tire = surface of drum = radius times angular velocity.
5) determines the power by multplying force time speed (at the tire contact patch).
Both are actally correct :P, the last two steps manipulate the units in the same way. That just inculdes a time function at step 4 and not 5.

I prefer the way you said it though, I think its slightly more clear. So i'll steal your answer and edit my other post :D
