You must not have ever tracked the race results over multiple years, multiple classes, multiple drivers, finishing rates, different tracks and compared them against each other.
But that is understandable as most haven’t. So I understand why you think that.
But the reality is many 4cyls trucks have beaten many V6s over the years.
Your point is appreciated though as I am sure others have the same questions.
You can say, I didn't do this, and I didn't do that, when in reality, I did all of those things for about 17 years now.....
When you split the classes and I don't have to race against midsized V6 Rangers with twin I beams then I will come out and race your race....
