I hope hes not assuming a bug has more potential to go quicker in a straight line.
It's that same mentality that the damned "ignorant" domestic V8 heads have about hondas. "I've got a v8 so I am faster!!!!!!!!!" Me -> "yeah, big deal it came like that from the factory so yeah its faster, DUH, here's a frigging cookie, better yet, take my bag or oreos"
So with that being said, I'd give any argument like that to anyone if they were talking about a factory/stock race; but since this is a modified race, then it's up for grabs. I think that's what makes the sport so interesting; you never know until the race is over. Ignorance is bliss for some people.
Oh yeah, I love V8's and give respect where it's due. I wasn't talking about all V8 heads. You know what type of people I'm talking about. "They" aren't just V8 heads; they are those type of people who are just as ignorant regarding their imports.
