Do you really need torque at 500 rpm?
I get it at 1000.
But you do not crawl naturally over rocks with a petrol engine, unless your foot is ever-so-slightly on the pedal. Not even a big straight six.
But the difference between 500 and 1000 is too small for me to manage by foot
What I have considered doing though is installing a "volume switch" on the dashboard with which I can tweak the amount of revs much more accurately - just enough for a given incline.
On a very smooth torque curve such as mine, I think that will work.
