beforehand, this topic is not to start a flame war, or to bash on anyone. but, why is it that hondas can accomplish such greater 1/4 times with so much less power than focuses? i mean, take for example this b18c5 powered eg hatch in the newest honda tuning mag. it dynoed at 180hp 129tq, but laid down a 12.5 in the 1/4.(not sure if it was on street tires or not, and i think the weight was 21xx lbs) that makes no sense to me compared to, for example, tom's car which boasts around 435hp and laid down similar times. can someone enlighten me?? also, these are not the only two cases, just the first examples that came to mind. i have seen many similar phenomena that keep me pondering. thanks.
