The analogy is with cars...

The obsession amongst many with having the "fastest" or the "fastest accelerating" cars detracts from learning good driving technique.

I road raced cars years ago and a better analogy is: someone being focused on producing max horsepower (dyno testing and all the charts etc) and basically ignoring the car's handling or having adequate horsepower and spending one's time instead on getting the handling dialed in perfectly. One has a limited amount of resources (time and money) and being focused on one thing past the point of being adequate just doesn't really pan out. I won a LOT of races with a lot less horsepower than the people I raced against.
