I didnt know where to post this.

Lets say theres 2 car on the highway.

Car 1 : 3525 pounds 650HP Crank

Car 2 : 3100 pounds 575HP Crank

Both manual transmission. With Both skilled drivers.

From a Rolling race.

Can the Car 2 Hang with the Car 1 or even be faster?

Power to weight says the heavier car has a very very tiny advantage.
.1844 to .1855

It's going to come down to who has the higher average hp.

From a dig maybe it is close...but from a roll, the high hp car will walk.

Car 1 is Force Induction.

Car 2 is N/A.

Yeah i think saleen414 is right Car 1 is probably going to pull on from a roll.

Weight becomes a diminishing liability when the HP levels start to rise.
