Yeah I say take what you got tune it to run its best and tear up the road my friend! I was just stating facts last post but this is my opinion on the topic.Shiba-Kun said:IMO it's all about "fun", so have the most fun in whatever you got.
So you're saying a car the same overall size/weight as the Prelude with the same power/weight ratio and gearing would not perform better if it were RWD?what the... said:ahem...\/\/FWD is good for something\/\/\/
Nathan123 said:Sorry.... FWD is nothing but a hindrance to anyone trying to go fast, either in a straight line or around curves.
There is nothing, performance wise, that RWD can't do better than FWD. It doesn't matter if you've beaten cars that weigh 1100 pounds more than yours, or stomped on people who drive like shit when it rains... that's apples and oranges. If your car was RWD, it would be able to go faster. Period.danmakG60 said:I'm gonna have to throw my two cents in. If you have a good LSD and properly set up suspension you can hang with any RWD in most situtations, and even better in wet or low traction conditions. How do I know? I've autocrossed and road raced for many years and the numbers don't lie. Oh ya and I've smoked countless f-body's in my Corrado (2500lbs) at most autocross events.
So would a 5 hp go-kart. Or a well driven Geo metro.Solo2Civic said:yes...a RWD civic would be better than a FWD civic...but my FWD civic still kicks all the f-body car's ass at the autocrosses so im not too worried about it
