    The short answer is it's 6.6" straight line vs 6.7 around the arc.

    Here is a fun link to use.

    You made me a believer. I just went out to the garage and messed around with my torque wrench. The difference between 20 ft-lb and 25 ft-lb is only a (very) few degrees. Less than five, maybe as low as two. What that means is that even with a 20% torque wrench error you would only be off by a couple degrees. Damned interesting. I think i need to buy a new tool.
