Well yea, but something with say 80kw per ton isn't going to make you gun the motor but it'll have a decent amount of in-gear accel when you need it. I also agree with the power restrictions but its idiotic the way it was implemented. Turbo chargers and cyl numbers...really? Power to weight ratio is the way to go. I hate my Red Ps, being forced to drive 90 in a 110 zone can be pretty dangerous at times.On the other hand an underpowered car forces you to give way a lot more often and it helps "calm the nerves". With a bit more power you may get a bit tempted to gun it more often but regardless, I can see why they have power restrictions. Even now I'm on my fulls and have moved on to various other cars, I still get tempted to put the foot down a bit.
