I've never driven an AWD vehicle before and I was just curious. Are the WRXs more prone to understeer than oversteer? It seems like from a few of the videos I've seen, it is more prone to understeer when pushed, although I've seen a few videos too where the back will suddenly lash out unexpectedly. What has been your experience?
Also, I live in Utah where it snows alot. I know AWD really helps for acceleration in the snow, but I've seen firsthand that good snow tires on a FWD car will outperform all season tires on an AWD car for general snowy road performance. Of course if you load the AWD car with snow tires, then it is king again. Is it really that helpful to have AWD on snowy roads? Thanks!
