    Buy a AWD or RWD car no more of this FWD crap. Stop supporting torque steer!

    Statements like this can only be made by people whose cars are worth more than $500 at an auction!

    Well, that is very true... but my GSR handles better than, say, a Crown Vic would!

    Either car can be a capable handler, but I will have to concede that I do love RWD oh so much more!

    FWD does me perfectly fine. RWD in the snow can be a bitch. Besides, I don't get torque steer.

    Do you have an LSD? When you come on the gas around a turn in a higher powered FWD car you dont seem to notice that it trys to rip the wheel out of your hands and drive straight?


    I find RWD is more predictable in the winter, with 48/50 WD i find the car tends to be more balenced when there is a loss of traction. Plus i prefere my wheels with the power spinning, and myself still being able to steer. Where in my experience,
    lose traction = lose steering in a FWD car

    Not my car. not that I've noticed.. I don't suggest too much high speed cornering in a stock supsension '92 accord though :lol: My old SiR didn't torque steer either.

    I'll take more weight over the drive wheels in snow condition any day!
