Dumdum. Thanks for overgeneralizing my statement. Thanks for the hasty generalization & for the strawman.
I understand where your coming from, but the main point of my statement was geared towards FWD being contrary to performance, this isn't very debatable.
When you say, "Reality check." I sit and wait to be enlightened because tires & bigger turbo just aren't showin me the light when we are talkin fwd.
fwd vs 4wd. hmmm, I think that car is poor because its fwd and i bet the majority of professional drivers would agree. I will say that for a fwd car that its pretty good.. But there is a whole different world out there so why be stuck with something that is so contradictorily to performance. It reminds me of how Mustangs still have a straight axle.. hah
The creators of Fwd "performance" cars & the straight axle mustang must be related.
In addition if this is all driver error, then I would like to get a better driver in that srt & if he beats me i will say its driver error.
(i am a believer in the type R)
I do believe the MAJORITY of car control is done by the driver, but "performance" fwd creators.. come on
