What is the transformer ratio between the Aero Car and the regular motor driven loco's. Does it need more power to keep pace or less ?
I would like to see a one on one ratio contest with the same amount of weight on a regular loco and the Aero Car. Plus other tests with added weight.

in the video the aero car is running on a lionel 1033 90 watt transformer through a full wave bridge rectifier. the locomotives are running on american flyer 4b 100 watt transformers. the aero car is at about 60% power, the locomotives about 50 % power.
