This year it was won by a big 8 cylinder in a V with turbos and stuff hanging off it and getting to over 2,400hp.
But I was wondering, are EV's "Handicapped" in a pure HP comparison? Is there a way to calculate "Equivalent HP" if one was to say, wish to attend this festival of smoke and rubber and put the ICE's in their place with an EV, what would be a fair way to compare?
Is 1HP from an EV = to 1.5hp in a ICE? 2HP? 0.75?
I suppose the best way to explain what I'm after is that if say:
EV throws out 1,000HP on a Dyno, would an ICE have to beat it by scoring:
- They are on par
- This is hard to calculate
