front wheel drive


Recommended Posts

does any body know what cars are front wheel drive besides the jester, blista compact, and the forklift. Also how much of a diffrence does it make?

it makes a lot of difference. The power tranfered to front wheel drive cars can make steering less predictable, but they handle better in lower speed turns, they can turn sharper with less braking and less traction loss in the rear tires.

Rear drive cars can turn more predictably, but if too much power is given in a turn, the back end can whip out in front of you, which can be fixed with a tap of the e-brake and a turn in the direction the back end is swing to. These can be drifted too (driving the car through turns at high speeds will sliding at angles from 15-45 degrees sideways), easier than front wheel drive.

Then theres AWD (all-wheel drive)cars. These have the best off-road handling because all wheels are being power, giving more chance of power being transfered to the ground.

 

But then there are factors of if the car's engine is placed in the rear, middle, or front of the car. That effects the vehicles center of gravity, and handling at various speeds. A front engine/rear drive car (banshee) is good for exceleration and moderate handling at high speeds (more of a tendency for traction loss), while a mid engine/4 wheel drive car (infernus) has moderate exceleration but good high speed handling, because it's easier to get your traction under control. Then front engine/ front drive cars.... well i'd say they aren't really good in any aspect, maybe just too easy and boring too drive... in my opinion. No fun.

 

The front wheel drive cars i can think of are:

bravura

blista compact

club

flash

manana

sunrise

jester

taxi

 

Rear Drive:

Elegy

Super GT

Bullit

HotKnife

Uranus

Buffalo

Windor

Zr350

Tornado

Tahoma

Cabbie

Slamvan

Solair

Sabre

PHeonix

Cheetah

Banshee

 

AWD Cars:

Sultan

Turismo

Comet

Euros

Infernus

 

I hoped this helped.

The Hermes is also front wheel drive, though with it being a 30's-40's style car, you'd think it should be rear wheel drive. In fact, there are a lot of vehicles that you think should be rear wheel drive instead of front wheel drive confused.gif
