Default cars under $40k comparison.. what gives?

I was at a friend's last night and he went to subiesport's website and we watched a video clip where they were comparing three cars:
Nissan 350Z
Evo MR
2.5RS

Did I miss something? I really didn't notice what if anything was modified on the cars, but the 2.5rs seemed to at least have aftermarket exhaust. It didn't sound turbo'ed so me and my friend were like "why are they comparing the RS with two other cars that have "slightly" more hp?" Is it because it was a comparison of track agility or something similar?

Thanks for the link, but I still don't get why they put the RS up against cars with so much more power. Aren't the Z and MR both over 300hp? That doesn't seem fair in the hp department. Maybe they should have compared a Sentra 2.5, a Mirage, and the 2.5RS, all modded.

Yes, perhaps, but in the handling dept. The RS has the Z and EVO and WRX all beat. If you read the article in the magazine, you can see who won and who lost (it wasn't the RS). The course we laid out was a good balance between fast sections and tight slow-corner sections. The issue might still be on the newsstand in some places. You can go to the Subiesport webpage and there is a map that tells you everywhere Subiesport is sold.
