Power-to-weight ratio is the metric that determines how fast a car is in the real world. No, Ahmed, your million dollar pigfat Bukkae Viron wont be as fast as a cheap lightweight kit with thrice less hp. No, Muttina, your fuckboy boyfriend's """performance""" 2 ton german cuckovers wont be as fast as a turbo miata. COPE
Horsepower is irrelevant marketing bullshit

Poorfags seething as usual.
Explain why the fastest production car is a near-5000lb family sedan
its not, /n/igger
It's only fast to 60. And that's because 0-60 is limited by grip, and tesla can have perfect traction control due to the EV drivetrain.
It’s not really. Electric motors and internal combustion engines work differently. Cooling is too large of an issue with electric motors. Peak power can only be maintained for about 20 seconds. Continuous power is much lower. It’ll be fast from 0-60, but it’s not great around a track, from a roll, or in longer/repeated runs.
torque vectoring is really important in putting down a lot of power
brake vectoring is also why theyre dogshit at tracks, the brakes are being fried in the braking zones, corner entry, and exit
Explain why it can't race a rebadged Golf.
I find it funny the retards who act like being fast or pulling Gs is the single most valuable metric in an automobile. It's child's play next to any turbine engine fighter jet
>horsepower is a bullshit metric
>it's used in half of the power to weight ratio
seems pretty vital to me.
This is why I only enjoy kei cars and ordinary base models and leave the performance to proper race cars now. Even something like the SRT is still too civilian
Don’t care lol
MO POWAH BABEH
You didn't even try.
A 300hp Miata has much better power-to-weight than picrel. Sneed, Muhammad
>A ledditor thinks that using shitnut media quotes makes him fit in
Don't forget gearing.
