Actually I think it has something about the physics of having a smaller layshaft pulley than today's larger pulleys. I did a comparison back in the day before brushless was around and hand pushed two highly competitive different brushed cars, one with 1.77 and one with 2.25 and the one with the 2.25 had much more resistance. Meaning it wasn't able to go as far.
But i will agree that with today's brushless and practically common ratios between all cars, they're all equal.
