why is this true?

this an old article but i wondered about this quote....“There will be some tracks where one vehicle has a slight advantage over another, like the SVTs on a shorter course or the Duratecs on a longer course, but that’s racing.”....from [URL="http://grassrootsmotorsports.com/news/032007/spec-focus.php"]

I think its about the torque curve. Duratecs get a little bit more torque over the SVT, and where it is in the powerband.

Well, don't forget - it's horsepower, torque, AND gearing...

with the torque and gearing on the ST i would think it would be better on a shorter track
