I find that very hard to believe. You keep agreeing with my comments and then tearing them apart in the same paragraph. Again, my comments are generalisations, and they are my opinions. Again I know not every 4WD car is better than every FWD. But if you were to take those great FWDs like the ITR and make them 4WD, and I will again include the caveat of it being set up properly, they would be faster. In a straight line or around a bend. But in the environment that we live in of course we can't drive our cars anywhere near the limit on british roads. The most common example of someone using trying to use all the power in their car is TLGP. Whether you agree with the concept or not you have to agree that in that situation, with similarly matched power outputs (although in the wet they don't have to be that similar lol) 4WD is king. And I am a bit of a fan of TLGPs, in the town I live it is literally a set every 200m on average, so it's pretty much the only way you can give it the beans, so again I'll say, in my opinion 200HP or more wastes a lot of power spinning the wheels so why bother. If you drive on lots of sweeping A roads then yeah of course a high powered FWD car will still be great fun, but when it comes to TLGPs you won't do so well. So why not buy a car that's good at both? The only people who it wouldn't really effect is those who never do TLGP, they don't need the traction of a 4WD so much and a good FWD would do them fine. But there are not many of those about. I'll use the focus RS example again though. They're planning to put up to 300bhp in it with FWD. Now yes of course if they develop it properly it'll be a great car, but how much of a better car would it be with 4WD? And if so then why not fit it with it? If audi can do it for a car only £2000 more expensive to buy (although I think most of that is the interior compared to a focus) why can't ford?
