I was looking at some of the "racing" section and i was wondering what made the tib able to beat cars that have 190+ hp stock? I know weight comes into a factor but is there something else? Like ive read stories of stock tibs beating the 200 horse eclipses so it confuses me why are car can hang with 170hp and at 3,000lbs it seems to be at where most cars are at. Does the extra gear in the 6pd give it that much of an advantage on 5spd with more hp?

the new eclipse weighs an *** load and doesnt really have 200 hp, they dont rate bhp plus they rate it high. The gearing is very aggressive in a 6speed yes but isnt the reason for winning. some of the crazy wins posted in the racing section are either made up or the person they are racing cant drive worth a damn.
