Is it just me or are all these charts just a bunch of wasted paper and time? In my opinion the only way to compare the cars is to get in and drive them. All these paper comparisons really don't mean anything. Spend all this time with these fancy formulas, talk about gearing, weight, torque, traction and whatever else, when all you really need to do is take the car for a ride. I mean when was the last time you flipped on the tv to watch a race and you see two guys sitting down comparing dyno charts? You don't, you see cars being driven. The only thing that counts is who crosses the finish line first.
-just my opinion on dyno charts and formulas.
