Now more than ever, performance driving enthusiasts out there are looking for the optimal way to boost (no forced induction pun intended) the lap times of their vehicles.
And while there are tons of why in which one can get the answer to such a question, we're here to give you Engineering Explained's take on the matter.

In the latest video from the carp physics-related channel, we get to see a comparison involving doubling a car's power and improving its tire performance with rubber that's ten percent better.

While some of you will have the tendency to try and guess the answer, we're advising you to pay attention to the footage, as there are plenty of chances you'll find the explanations provided here useful.

However, you must keep in mind that we're talking about a simplified model, as one that would involve all the variables that play a part in you beating the stopwatch at the track would probably require more YouTube patience that most viewers are willing to invest. After all, the beauty of real-world modding is that the posibilities and combinations are infinite, so spending eight minutes of your life on watching this video can be the start of a satysfying journey.

And while watching such a clip isn't nearly enough to consider you've completed your research before you start adding custom bits and pieces to your four-wheeled pride and joy, this is an excellent place to start. Oh, and by the way, the video also packs a surprise appearance, one that will definitely come across as random.

Of course, modding extremists could always use such a piece of footage to support their cause, with the video thus proving just as valuable to your typical ricer as it can be to the average muscle car exageration fan.

P.S.: In case you're wondering about the title of the book that's involved in this clip, we're dealing with the Physics For Gearheads here.
