Default New power measurement

I think here at miataturbo instead of power to weight ratio, we should have a power to post ratio. :gay:

Hmmm....let's see a few examples.....Braineack 5000+ posts/200hp = 25 posts per hp or hustler with 1000+ posts/100hp = 10 post per hp.

Yes, combined is a great idea.

Combined: 285 + 210 + 180 + 400 (est) + 173

1800/1248 = 1.44
