Vitviper got booted from the track for being too fast in his civic without a roll cage. DD streetable car too. Breaking 9's. FWD is very capable.

okay well that's all great. fwd can still be quick... but your never going to get the same with rwd. even if you are hardcore honda, why do you think there is a rwd s2k.....?

7 second s2k's all around..

anyways it doesn't matter.

For the 99% of us who will never drive a car to it's full potential anyway...... I think your FWD will do just fine.

More seat time and I bet you can beat most guys around a race track with your civic vs. their porsche/bmw/audi/3?0Z

jrotax beats guys in cars way more expensive and with way more power by having a better handling/better setup car and mostly by skill. Me buying an R8 tomorrow does not mean I can drive worth a hoot.

This thread is fun though.

For me: I want an old 240z with a RB26DETT swapped in. I know it fits.

I made this thread bc the other thread went way off course.

It's a good thread with an interesting arguable topic that can go anywhere and anyhow. Share your opinions. No opinion is wrong. That's why arguments/debates exist.

I do want RWD just for power oversteer. I used to love "drifting" in my old truck in the snow.

Nothing wrong with awd. My next car might be awd. But it just seems like there are soo many people under the illusion that awd is God's gift to drive trains, when in reality it has its fair share of drawbacks.
