    even if f16 is not the best fighter is the most popular one and is always associated with fastest planes, it's not about performance it's only gimmicky

    I watched the episode. Thats an older one from like 1 or 2 years ago and its completely true. It was a stock, red, 03 or 04 viper srt-10.

    ps- the FA-18 is the most "popular", everyone uses 'em.

    The distance chosen is picked to provide the desired result.

    Just like the famous Top Gear F1 versus WRC Focus versus Ford 'thing'. Each passed the other on the last corner. hey WOW, liek it's not hard to clacualte lap timesnad then decide what gap to start them off at to have them pass the next slower on the last corner.

    Same here. get the specs for each, work out when the plane passes the car and draw an arbitrary finish line just before it. Run race. Hey wow, the car won, no sh!t

    they can only do it over these distances because after the distance, the plane would take off

    again, PR-speak.

    The plane COULD be run with no flaps and slight pitch down and delay V1 - the normal rotation point to pitch the nose up and take off.

    It's a stupid comparison in my mind anyway and alwasy will be. Cars get traction by tyres. Planes get "traction" by exhaust speed. Of course a car will beat a plane away from scratch, that's physics, and of course a plane will beat a car on top sped for the same reasons - physics. EVERYTHING else in the comparison is only car manufacturers getting publicity.

    They'd be as well saying there car can be painted quicker than a plane
    Worryingly , SOME fanboys would still think that important if it let them notch up another for their favourite
