How do you think a V 173 could surpass a Corsair or P51 with 2x 80hp ? Just look at wikipedia`s flight data.

I wasn't clear, my mistake. The V-173 was a prototype for the XF5U (I included the link to that). The XF5U would surpass the Corsair and P-51 in speed (475 to 500mph), not the V-173 which obviously would not, could not.
