Could you be more specific? Why can't the arduino cope?

Torque for what?
Again, maybe a link would help us stay on the same page.

I researched 3D printers thoroughly before I bought mine. I even started
asking questions at a forum, and I'm still not too certain if I got what
I sought.
According to this list, I did worse when looking for hacker boards.
So, you are not alone.
