    It's true that some of the best handling and fastest cars in the world are RWD and not the godsend AWD, however, AWD does more than just make it easier for n00bs to drive. With knowledge of how to drive an AWD car and work a manual tranny well AWD can be VERY useful and do some cool stuff... especially on dry pavement.

    Your argument is flawed. Instead of completing your intended purpose of defending the use of FWD in sports cars you just engaged in an attack on the useful ness of AWD.

    You've kinda presented yourself with a red herring argument there.

    Hmmm......I think you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who in reality could debate FWD being better for any kind of major motorsport.

    Well, there is someone in this thread that argued DEI was more efficient.

    My friend has a 2.0 GSR-t in his EM1 civic putting down 400 whp.
    his basically useless car will stomp the **** out of your car.
    he also owns a 03 wrx.

    for the record he has beat

    05 WRX sti
    Modded Evo 9

    I love it when people think AWD is the godsend of automotive technology.
    If you know how to drive you can rip in FWD
    AWD with 300HP vs FWD with 300HP
    FWD will eat it up on top end cuz their is less drivetrain loss.
    thanks for your $.02 though

    STI on slicks vs Integra on slickshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiOhwKtC7QE
    I rest my case

    I'm not trying to bring on a lock here, but you seem to do an awefully good job of bringing up what other people have and what others can accomplish, if you don't mind me asking, how many ponies does your car stable? As far as the clutch masters car, yes, let's all bring up shop cars as a measuring stick, everyone knows shop cars translate directly to street performance for the average user. GM really proved to the world how fast factory backed FWD drag cars can be with the Cobalt, yet the privately owned versions seem to be stuck in the 12 second range. And for the record, 300whp is 300whp. If you wanted to throw in weight as a hit on AWD I could see it, but not using equal whp cars and citing drivetrain loss. Unless of course you were using math for ricers and used BHP figures, but you're a smart guy, I don't see you doing that.

    Is it FWD? If not the loss through the drive train will make it slower than Brians friends's unicorn.
