i think the tranny plays a bigger role. I know little hondas are so quick mainly because of their weight but their trannies are a lot tighter too.

Its like comparing the 05 maxima vs the 300m special. The max is about the same weight, same hp but its more responsive and faster off the line vs the special.

Thats just my 2 cents.

Good luck

I can tell you that my wife's Ion has a better power to weight ratio than my trep and it moves right along. That and it having a manual tranny!

Lol... how much hits the ground, weight is irrelevant if you are talking about 180 hitting the ground and 64 in the trunk chillin' with your tranny

Lol... the question was, "which would you rather have ?", not which is faster.

Well, figuring the LHS has the same tranny and gearing... I'll take the R/T !!

Wouldn't care if the Lumina Z34 was quicker in the 1/4mile, still take the R/T !!
