I've seen you guys at Timmis since I moved here 2 years ago, I always wondered what forum you’re where part of. The lack of car scene was pretty depressing when I moved here. Winnipeg has one of the largest car scenes in Canada. If you ever see a Black G6 GTP coupe driving down Blanchard wave.

and when it comes to drag racing, awd is worse than a solid axle car. fieros are known todo wheelies on street tires and camaros have decent rear suspensions.

Is that why AWD's street cars are only doing 7 sec in the 1/4?

Thanks

and rwd street cars are only doing mid 6s? fuck, fwd cars go 7s in the 1/4, your point makes no sense.

its all about physics, and front drive wheels dont gain you anything except extra weight, rotating mass... and irs just doesnt plant the tires like a proper suspension that pushes the tire into the track and the rest of the car up under torque.

Um

Front drive wheels give you more traction.

If Im running 225s all round, its like running 450s on the rears, taking weight transfer into account.

Yea, maybe for sub 10 second cars it's a bad idea, but neither of us are running that.

Im running high 11s at best.

I was asking you a question, so I don't even know what you are talking about with this making a point thing, you okay?

BTW any day you and your "race car" wants to line up just say when. Just think it's a chance for you to show me what a real car can do.

Thanks
