The higher power rating vehicle will win more often, but there is always a chance for an upset. For example, if your vehicle is rated 60 and the opponent's is rated 20, then your chance of winning is 60/(60+20), or 75%. I'm actually working on making the calculation a little more sophisticated to better factor in the lopsided nature of this kind of matchup (so your odds of winning would be much higher). That change likely won't be in for another week (as I am on vacation...)
