Assuming everything else is equal between two or more cars...

    Assuming everything else is equal between two cars, would the car with the higher horsepower have higher top speed and vice versa?

    What dictates a vehicles road speed?

    if you took one car and increased the engine horsepower but at the same engine rpm, you would need to lengthen the gearing to suit the higher potential top speed.
