    Okay...this is a 1/4 mile race.. Both cars have equal ammounts of aerodynamics(sp?) but their only differences is weight and horsepower.

    Car 1:
    Weight: 2,998 lbs.
    Horsepower: 225 @ 5900 RPM
    Torque: 214 @ 3500 RPM

    Car 2:
    Weight: 3486 lbs.
    Horsepower: 280 @ 6200 RPM
    Torque: 270 @ 4800 RPM

    Who do you thkink would win?

    The general rule is 100 lbs=10 hp, I would say car 2 would be a little faster.

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :D

    The only reason I don't want to say anything is because there still is a chance that I won't get the car, and I don't wanna post pictures of it ands say what it is, then something hapens and I end up not getting it, cause that always happens with me...

    I'm 90% positive car 2 is a G35, and if it is you're hp stats are wrong.

    Edit- And I bet car 1 is BMW...

    car 1 power to weight ratio: 13.32hp per lb
    car 2 power to weight ratio: 12.45hp per lb

    would be pretty damn close based on that
