I think you missed my point.
Check this out.

FORD EXCURSION - 27.8 pounds per horsepower
SMART FORTWO - 25.8 pounds per horsepower
HONDA INSIGHT - 24.6 pounds per horsepower
CHEVROLET AVEO - 23.8 pounds per horsepower
TOYOTA PRIUS - 22.7 pounds per horsepower
VOLKSWAGEN JETTA TDI - 22.7 pounds per horsepower
HYUNDAI ACCENT - 22.5 pounds per horsepower
TOYOTA YARIS - 22.3 pounds per horsepower
HONDA FIT - 21.3 pounds per horsepower
SMART FORTWO BRABUS - 18.2 pounds per horsepower
BMW M3 - 8.9 pounds per horsepower

Not that I would recommend towing anything with a smart car, or any car for that matter. Point is, if you drive a smallish sedan or underpowered (Ford) SUV, your power-to-weight ratio is approximately the same as a smart car.

I should hope not. Imagine the mayhem you would be causing on the freeway. I can just imagine the charge now, "DURT", Driving Under Room Temperature.

If your happy with it, that is all that matters.
That's where I'm confused. Everyone says the bolts suck, but ill give them that one. My bolt locks up if to much for e is put one way or another and it wiggles like a sun of a beech when pulled all the way back. Then a lot of people say non of them could hold MOA to save it from the melting put, but even with factory ammunition, I've gotten sub groups....and that's with five shots. Using hand loads I can bring them down even more.

And yet you still see them in Tulsa traffic... Of course every time I see one, it's a different color... Maybe that means they don't survive long enough for me to see them twice...

Smothers Brothers- "I wish I was in Peoria..."

On the freeway we must drive
much to our chagrin.
In our tiny foreign car,
so small and made of tin.

Other cars go speeding by
So fast that they could fly-
Just before the fatal crash,
you'll hear the mournful cry...

(Chorus)
Oh how I wish I was in Peoria...
