I wouldnt say the main key at all. the main key is a good setup and someone who can drive.

If your not light your not quick. Ask lotus, Ariel atom, and Caterham which are some of the most quickest cars in the world.

lol my car weighs close to 3k and i went 11.9 with 375whp. like i said weight helps but a driver is what matters. bryan maybe has 100lb out of his car, rule of thumb is every 100lb is 1/10 so add 1/10 to his time and he is still flying for 230whp.

weight can and will help a car preform better but even more important is the cars setup and a driver who has a good idea of what is going on and how they need to use that setup to get the best out of it.

Before the red car was gone from this world, I took it to orlando spin world to make some 1/4 passes. I got stagged with a 1.8t bettle. I got it off the line, through the 60ft and across the line, but he was catching me. The way they scored the run, he won because he had a shorter ET than me by .1 sec. I was disappointed! But proud of my 117whp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
