Sorry Derek, I didn't mean to come off like a douche or anything. I was simply trying to say that it really comes down to the driver at these power levels, and if there was any 'schooling' involved, it was me quickly learning that I needed to make absolutely ZERO mistakes.
My point was only to say that at these power levels, anybody can win on any given day with a bit of finesse and skill (or luck, if you prefer).
It is indeed fun to discuss, hence this discussion.
Hey I was a bit rough on my reply. I apologize for that. You have the video to back up what you say so that's worth the price of admission right there Man.
You are correct on the driver skill making the biggest difference in this kind of comparison. I like this particular vid as this guy is not all MOPAR or CORVETTE. He, in my opinion, is one of the better youtube guys. The differences in the cars is a common debate but yes, of course, they are not the same in the classification. Which comes back to brute power in a straight line as the only thing we can realistically compare. Tires and driver.... makes the difference.
Look forward to meeting up this summer and having a root beer.
