            What is FWD?! there's only RWD or the WWD (Wrong Wheel Drive).

                You did notice the Miata was behind the Civic in the list? And I can haul a full set of race tires in my Civic. I don't need any funny tire tails or tire trailers to pull along.


                That's hotter than a tricycle!

                  I tossed my FWD Scion tC around Spring Mountain, SOW, and CalSpeedway, and it did pretty well for a 170hp 2900 lb car on 245 Azenis. Surprisingly predictable and balanced. I was also able to beat my buddy in his WRX around SOW in a Sentra SE-R.

                  But they were definitely not as much fun as the quicker RWDs - Miata, Trans-Am, or Z06.

                    F1 Driver Jenson Button has tried his best but he could only pull some sloppy backwards donuts like this.

                    Sometimes, lap times dont matter, rich ppl can certainly dump more money in a FWD to make it go fast, but to me motorsports is also about the driving pleasure and having the ultimate car control!! RWD vs FWD? we all know which one is more fun and requires more skill to drive..
                    I will be in agreement with you only if one day Formula 1 car will change to FWD with over 700bhp.

                        Why yes, I do experience driving pleasure when I passed all those slower cars (like that Miata)

                        Laptimes don't matter? This conversation is officially over!

                        Yeah realized that. But being the only 1 / 2 FF guys on here, I feel compelled to mouth off a little.

                        And it's all fun and games, until someone in RWD gets passed!

                          You mean Richard? Don't sweat it, he gets pass all the time.
                          Oh wait, he will now be in has AWD gocery getter. In this case, we better move out of his way.

                            Why would we want to?

                            We leave those cars for the guys who make excuses and don't know how to counter-steer.

                              You guys are making the excuses. Did I say anything about how I was afraid to drive RWD? Yet everytime I make this point, you guys come up with excuses why not to drive front wheel drive. Shot yourself in the foot there buddy. Just keep the leadfoot down, thats what Vettes are good for.
