It's not so much top speed in this case. Sure, it's fast, but in a straight line there are others just as fast or faster.

What REALLY made the difference was the absolutely BEAUTIFUL manner in which if could take corners. Their cornering speed was well above what anyone else was putting down allowing them to carry more speed around the track as a whole.

What let them do that - who's to say at this point. I got a chance to check it out a little bit, but did not get the opportunity to stick my head under it (I don't think the would have let me).
