    AWD Rules?

    GT-R reminds me of the Audi Quarttro race car in the 90s.Audi Quarttro is so strong that it got banned from most races.And that's why we saldom see awd cars in circuit racing today.FIA has banned it.

    And look at those time-attack racing in Buttonwillow or Tsukuba Circuit,we can easily notice that Awd cars are obviously quicker.

    So Awd rules?

    Anyway,the Cusco Subaru Impreza from Japanese SuperGT Championship (Something like DTM in Germany) Gt300 Class,which is the only AWD track race car I can find,is fast,but not fast enough to be the champion this season.

    Re: AWD Rules?

    I don't understand your question?

    Re: AWD Rules?

    QUATTRO IST FUER SCHWULE!

    germans can translate it for those who don't get it, but essentially i don't like AWD cars.. Just not as fun and engading.. give me good old RWD! I'm not racing to shave 0.001 second of my lap.. i barely drive spirited on public roads so the "0.5% faster times of the AWD" does absolutely nothing for me. Each to his own though

    Re: AWD Rules?

    the question is:

    "awd rules?"


    Re: AWD Rules?

    AWD rules only in bad weather.

    RWD is much more fun in the dry and just as fast if not faster. eg C2S and C4S.

    Re: AWD Rules?

    I agree, I love AWD. I like the feeling of being pulled and pushed, and traction allll the time doesn't hurt!

    Re: AWD Rules?

    AWD = RWD in my opinion.
    Yes, RWD is more entertaining - but I always say, you use 4 wheels to brake? Why not 4 wheels to accelerate and control your vehicle?

    Re: AWD Rules?

    Depends on what you want.
    On the street I'd like AWD for traction and stability.
    On the track RWD is more fun and rewarding if you will, to drive.
    AWD can be a lot of fun on the track, too. It all depends on the setup.

    As for AWD on GP circuits I believe it's a matter of weighing pros and cons, i.e. extra kilos and lower top speed compared to the extra traction.
    And the there are politics and rules of the FIA...which is a different story altogether.

    Could be fun seeing F1 with AWD

    Re: AWD Rules?

    I would like to see F1 explore the possibility of AWD and moveable aero.

    Coming next year. Driver's will be able to adjust the angle of the front wing by 3 degrees from the cockpit.

    Ha - you can afford to say that, Atz, out there in the banana belt of Canada But, for those who live in places where there is a real man's winter, and want to have fun driving in it, I can assure you that AWD (and dedicated snow tires) is an enthusiast's best friend.
