What's so bad about front wheel drive ? I love these cars , but everyone here seems to hate front wheel drive .
>>
Retarded Miami lad pls go.
>>
dey bad cuz oh say dey bad
>>
>>14268785
Oversteer for one. Hitting a bump on a FF while accelerating isn't fun either.
>>
>>14268860
Why does everyone here hate FF? I mean they don't even drive the car but two letters makes them think it's garbage
It's kinda confusing
>>
>>14268785

Everyone on /o/ acts like they drive a m3 with a 6spd manual and tuning package

Front wheel drive cars have their place on the road

I drive a '15 honda fit with summer and winter tire sets and have no complaints
>>
>>14268785
No idea. All of my cars have been rwd except my current car.
Now i drive a 12 Civic Si and it's by far my favorite car i'v ever owned.
Does the back kick out? No. However it still hits corners like a boss and is overall very fun to build on and drive.
>>
STOP
>>
>>14268891
LOL OK buyers remorse
Just because your wife forced you into an econobox doesn't mean we all have to
My Miata NA would shit all over any FWD piece of shit
>>
>>14268785
Working on them sucks in comparison, but that's about all I can think of
>>
>>14268940
Dude i'm 21.. My last car was a 94 Miata believe it or not.
I had many good canyon runs in that car and it was always fun. I just happen to like the Si more..

So you admit FWD is only good for commuting A to B?

So is there someone else who actually owns a rampage here, or is someone just trying to make everyone hate them by being a faggot?
>>
>>14268785
In the real world front wheel drive doesn't matter, it's just the bench racers on /o/ who think it actually matters.

The only downside I could see to FF in your particular situation would be the mad skids/crazy understeer you'd end up doing trying to haul any real weight in an FWD ute.
>>
Uphill is a nightmare. I live in Colorado and need 4wd ASAP
>>
>>14269141
In any car with more than 200hp FWD sucks. Torque steer, weight transfers to rear while accelerating=burn out, can't accelerate out of corners as fast=understeer. also my personal favorite
>backing up hills when it snows
fwd sucks cock in the snow/ice. anyone who says otherwise can't drive for shit. in the real world, fwd seriously sucks and anyone who says otherwise doesn't drive fast or in bad weather or is just a shitty driver so the inherent understeer makes them feel faster.
>>
>>14269191
Wow look at all those things you read on the internet
>>
>>14269199
I've experienced them in real life with my 2000 Maxima SE 5 speed. Shit can't hook up, it had mad wheel hop and torque steer even with only 224hp.
>>
>>14269206
Haha wow this post says a lot about /o/
I don't think I can take FF vs RWD seriously anymore, they're on the same level
>>
>>14269199
I've experienced all of those with the Eclipse GS-T I've owned and every econo shitbox i've ever driven. Sorry you suck at driving and own slow cars.

sorry your car is slow. when you cross the 200ish hp mark FWD becomes god awful.

Like i said faggot. what shitmobile do you drive where fwd is so great? do you even have the power to break the tires loose?

Those things are only factors because you drive a fuckin maxima

>>14269279
No, I'm the guy who drove the eclipse turbo. i've also driven many other fwd cars of varying power level. fwd blows, it has never once been a benefit. ever.

hell, even the focus st sucked. it would be a thousand times better without traction control continually slowing you down to stop you from spinning.

Most FF cars are unapologetic shitboxes and are downright awful to drive, so it makes sense, really. There are so few that are actually nice to drive vs the millions that are shit. In today's market, RWD cars are far more likely to have had attention paid to the driving dynamics, whereas FWD is a cost and fuel saving measure that is at home in appliance cars.

>>14273675
More like guys who read too many drifting forums and watched too much Initial D, or who have listened to the same tired old lore that's been spouted since FF cars were abject garbage.

I've owned close to 20 cars, with every layout except RR, and currently own an FF car and an FR car. They're all fine. FR is fun because you can steer it with the throttle, FF is fun because you can toss it around willy nilly and straighten it out with the throttle.

>>
>>14272634
Corey, some of us got past high school and moved out of our parents house, to places where it sometimes snows or rains or even ices over. In these places, we cannot hoon in our RWD cars when the weather is bad because we will slip and slide all over the place. The usual solution is to drop some sandbags in the rear to try to imitate FF traction, and while it helps, it hurts gas mileage and makes the car heavier.

M8. Snow tires. Any car will be fishing for grip without them, almost any car will be fine with them.

But it isn't a factor. In the terms of the argument it is not a factor.

Going way way way back to >>1426911, the idiot said fwd isn't good on snow. That is clearly wrong. That is what people are taking about.

>>14278601
No it's not? Who fucking cares about that post?

>>14278609
Ok, strictly performance wise, weather is still a factor, since part of performance is rally, and fwd does extremely well in 2wd/amateur rally classes.

Notice how these chumps can't refute my statement in any way other than attacking me personally and memes.

Unless you honestly believe that 10s of millions of econoboxes, subcompacts, minivans and transportation appliances in general are actually nice to drive, in which case you're just mentally ill.

Most cars in general are shit to drive, but proportionally, FWD has it worse. Why?
There are 3 reasons to do FWD in a modern car:
>packaging is simpler
>lower cost
>better fuel economy
That's it, and it's why FWD is so overwhelmingly common; cost and efficiency are king in the mass-market.

There is only one reason to do RWD in a modern car:
>driving dynamics
More powerful cars are usually RWD because it eliminates torque steer and puts the power to the ground more effectively, cars designed for speed are usually RWD because it lends itself to better weight distribution, traction under acceleration and is less likely to suffer from understeer. You don't see RWD in shitboxes anymore because FWD is better for shitboxes, and you rarely see fast FWD cars because RWD is just better for speed and driving dynamics.
>>
>>14279692
What the fuck else is he supposed to say if not "most fwd"?
>>
>>14279748
>can't refute my statement
Or maybe because it's just your opinion.

Nothing. I own a 2012 GTI and it's way more fun than my 350z or most other RWD cars I've owned.

Also most people on /o/ drive cars purely for the numbers on a sheet. So things that aren't are shit because everyone here only drives engineering perfection and not their moms 98 civic.

wow
I've owned 11 cars (and trucks) and driven hundreds in all types of weather.
For fun on the track, with training, rw is great,
For bad weather; for undertrained drivers (everyone, and you); for controlability; for most situations most people will ever encounter, fwd is just better.
A _GOOD_ awd will kick ass in most situations.
FWD does have torque steer and is easy to understeer (which is easier to recover from than oversteer) and the wheels break free on a hard start, this is all true.
It also takes more engineering and more cost to make an FWD, so that argument is moot; they make them because they are safer.
Like RWD? Great! Me too! Have fun, but learn something before flaming someone for asking a question in the appropriate place.
