yes, but you're talking about different things here. you're talking in regards to top speed: where an extra 200kg in weight means almost nothing compared to mere inches of frontal surface area.

in an autocross, even 100kg in extra weight can be crippling where an extra square foot of frontal surface area is barely noticeable.


absolutely weight is important to performance. but, the factors can change in regards to situation!

gearing, aero, i'd say- point is, the big weight disparity hasn't stopped it!
