Is it weight? gearing? power? aftermarket support? what?
Yes to all of the above, though gearing is probably the largest culprit.
It's primary purpose, reason for existence, where it's most happy, and shines above all others in it's class:
1) Spirited driving on twisty back-roads.
2) Chasing cones around an AutoCross course.
3) Ripping it up on a road course, and besting vehicles costing at least twice as much.
And, it does all that with authority, and exceptional gas mileage (considering the performance) to boot.
