Your right, I appologize for the off topic comment. Anyways, maybe driving style might play a part in what would make car "A" better for one person then car "B". We all know about setup, driver etc...But I race with 2 very fast guys that use the same cars, but if they switched cars, they admitted they can't drive the other persons at all. Totally different setups. So maybe driving style could play a part in the right car for and individual. Figuring out which car would be quit difficult though. Only the clock could really measure the difference for you.

Right...you can't take someone's setup and run the same as a setup you made for yourself. Now what I'm saying is give someone a Kyosho when they normally drive a Mugen and they can set it up to their liking. I bet they will still do well assuming they know what they're doing in the first place.

I agree 100%. They won't only do well, but probably do just as good if not better after using the different car for awhile. What I was trying to say was it would be difficult for anyone to actually follow through with this in real life. And then only the "Clock" will give you accurate results. After all to do this, you would need to buy every current onraod chassis on the market and give each one the same amount of track time to end up with accurate results. To bad they don't have Rent a car!
