If they both used the same engines and tire height than the Fusion would be faster, but the Fusion comes with a below average 1/8 scale engine and 1/10 scale tires so it would probably be close. I have seen the Fusion and it is very fast... in the parking lot.

That's why I said "in the parking lot". A Fusion would not stand a chance against a 1/8 scale on the track. I thought he was asking about top speed.
