Wrong, i can look at the available evidence and continuity and draw a conclusion from the known facts.
I have seen a lot more evidence that the suit was not up to the mobility standards of a regular suit than i have to suggest it was!
Simply Willing the buster suit to be that fast so that you can win your argument is no way to make a case.
In summary: that speciality suit was something Stark built to deliver a payload of Nanites, that was his chief strategy. He knew though he would have to get in close & personal and need a suit built for protection and power.
If that suit, indeed any speciality suit, was as fast & capable as you wish it were then it would be something he would be utilising a lot more than he does. He would be wearing a variation of that suit as his regular one, it's just common sense.
But as it stands these are only built for specific jobs, they are no replacement for the Versatility, mobility and speed that his regular suit gives him - when he was beaten by Firepower he didn't just build a Big heavily armed suit and retaliate in kind, he instead went for a faster more mobile regular suit as his standard.
When he was beaten by Ultimo he didn't opt for a bulky purpose built suit he instead went for a faster more versatile suit as his standard.... In both of these examples he designed the suit to replace his old one as well as adapting them to what actually defeated him.
There is a reason he opts for the regular slimline suit he wears and a reason he only occasionally has to resort to a specially built one and that has a great deal to do with the formers mobility & speed.
