So I'm guessing a supercharger setup with that much low-end torque?

All right.

Here is a better view of the doorway:





We've seen the shrubbery itself and the portrait of the Knight who says Ni. To the left of the portrait of the Knight is a portrait of the shrubbery:





And to the right of the night is a portrait of a building. This is the key which provides context for the whole scenario, and reveals the third vector:




(The poem which I painstakingly composed earlier also reveals a clue.)

Also, the throttle response is so poor that turbo cars are typically slower on the track than an N/A car with half of the max HP, and anyone less skilled than Juan Manuel Fangio will inevitably kill himself when his car swaps ends due to an unexpected delivery of power at the wrong moment.

I have datalogs.
