Are you kidding me? A strip of paint makes a fwd car faster off the line? Wow, I better beware of those paint strips.Originally posted by Ppower
Personally, what I hate the most about FWD is when you loose grip with just one tire and if the car has some torque it snaps the front end. This is common when hitting a deep puddle of water that is along the edge of the road. The rain thing was just an extreme example. FWD cars have an advantage on launch on the street too, because of the white paint strips used to mark the stopping point for an intersection. RWD cars have to get their drive wheels clear of this before laying in the gas or you can very well smoke the tires easy. FWD cars only have to go like 2 feet to clear them vs RWD which has to have almost have the whole car clear it. At some intersections they are even raised or humped a slight bit...
I hate those paint lines.
