Why is then said that true sportscar are RWD as I find in most car reviewsNoel said:I don't believe there is such thing as a best option on whatever drivetrain. All drivetrain layouts require different level of skills and experience to control and handle. Ultimately, it's what you're comfortable with and has best control/understanding over.
I knew someone would just bring this one up. Which I highly disagree BTW. An FR is considered a true sportscar because of the engine layout and where the power and steering controls are adapted. 2 wheels to steer the car, 2 wheels to power the car.justsomeboi said:Why is then said that true sportscar are RWD as I find in most car reviews
But suspension could have came into play also!vp911 said:I can't give you an honest opinion here, I have only owned FWD and AWD vehicles (no RWD)
But, go to a BMW (RWD) dealer drive a 530i, then go drive the Acura TL (FWD), and then the Acura RL (AWD) and you will probably come to the conclusion that the RWD 530i has the best handling. I don't know why that is, but that is how I felt.
Noel said:Comparing an S2000's FR layout with a more common or tradition FR layout is quite inappropriate. The S2000's layout is more bias to attempt a mid-ship setup to get a 50/50 distribution alike SW20s, NA1s, unlike the general FR layout cars. Pick a general FR like a GM make and that'll be severely different.
BTW, I also own an S2000.
Of course, there are so many different factors involved (type of car, power, suspension, tires, etc., etc.)
