The other cars in FSP have similiar weights and power. For instance a '92 Honda won at nationals last year in FSP. I don't know what model they were running but I do know that a '92 CX which weighs 2108 lbs and has 102 HP is eligable. Compare this with the GT at ~2100 lbs and ~90hp. Horsepower isn't everything but this clearly shows the GTs low weight really isn't that low within the class.DieConeDie said:
I didnt realize the suspension or power would be as much of a problem with such a low weight, but I instead thought there might be a gearing or F/R balance issue.
Its more of a general statement, about how a lighter car can handle much better than a heavier one with the same suspension and tires... simply a matter of lateral grip.Travis said:
Im puzzled by your suspension comment. Low weight can't compensate for bad suspension, no matter how light the car is.
I agree on your statement about tires but since tire and wheel sizes are completely open is FSP, I dont think it's relevant. The tires can be matched to the car to provide the same lateral accelerations.DieConeDie said:Its more of a general statement, about how a lighter car can handle much better than a heavier one with the same suspension and tires... simply a matter of lateral grip.
