## Main Question or Discussion Point

Im currently writing a code to find the optimum rpm points to shift gears to maximize acceleration. Thus far I've found the shift points and the rpm's after an upshift, meaning I have my bounds on my rpm vs torque curve. For simplicity's sake I'm assuming and increase of 1000 rpm to take 1 second. My is, after I take my engine torque and multiply it by the gear and final gear ratios, that torque is presumably applied at the axel, so how would I find the rotational acceleration of the wheel? (And would I need to divide the engine torque by two assuming the power is going to two wheels?)

Thanks in advance
