Is an EZ tune car as fast as a hand-tuned car?  Consequently NO it is not as fast as a hand-tuned car because a hand-tuned car is adjusted to the proper point to where the car barely crosses center at a given point.  Rather an EZ tune pre-drilled car needs to be certain that it will ride the center strip.  As a result the car is slightly over-steered which will reduce the maximum speed that it could attain.
