Yes, the xi sits a bit higher, and is a bit heavier, but having those extra wheels to put the power down has an advantage on the track as well. It's interesting to note that the Infiniti G35x was faster than the RWD G35 in previous Car and Driver track tests, and the same weight/height argument could be made about those.
I'd like to see it there for comparison and indeed wonder why it is not.
