Is this true, a loss of 257 lb/ft driveshaft torque?

1st to 2nd @ 6,200 rpms producing *200 lb/ft torque and *236 horsepower and engaging 2nd gear @ 3,676 rpms producing 234 lb/ft torque and 164 horsepower at a speed of 34 mph losing 257 lb/ft of driveshaft torque with the shift.

Also, can you explain the loss of driveshaft torque concept. I'm a little slow this morning and need some help to understand what you mean. Also, how did you arrive to that specifc number? From your above numbers it looks like you would gain torque after the shift. Are we mixing numbers, drive shaft vs. rear wheel torque?
