This statement is incorrect. Horsepower is not the only decider. A car with less HP can still be a car with more HP. Weight and Torque play into the equation.

I think it's implied that all other factors would be equal...

No, I think some people actually believe that horsepower trumps all. Like the people that automatically assume that the V6 Camaro will beat a 05-09 GT because it has 4 more HP!!!

Anyways, just can someone tell me how much the camaro would beat hte mustang?
Tell her that her 4.0 only has 210hp. That's why she'll lose.

and in case you dont know the motor in the 240 is a 2.4

93 nissans 2.4 > 08 fords 4.0

so why couldnt chevys 2010 3.1? > 09 fords 4.0

Ah yes the great Lapeer dragway. I used to race there. Is it still open?
The trap was always a few mph generous if I remember correctly.
Good times.
