Here is another little secret: AWD has been banned from the pinnacle of all track-based motorsports for being too successful and leading to extremely fast speeds around corners (hence dangerous as well). AWD dominates most motorsports, except that it is heavy penalized to make it competitive. Do your research next time tranverse leaf-spring boy. I wasn't even talking about the corvette of which the C5R is the penultimate corvette incarnate. I was mostly refering to comments made that because a car is faster in a strait line on the highway makes it a better car, which of course it doesn't. Fastest point-A to point-B cars (anywhere in the world) are still rally car derivatives, not sunny day only cars.
