Does All Wheel Drive always mean bad handling?

I love modding the cars for more power and with that comes a need to make them all wheel drive so we can get that power to the ground.

 

But, what I've noticed is that extreme power (driveforce values 0.80-1.25) completely eliminate steering when on the gas. I know, I know - its called understeer.

 

Just getting some thoughts on this. Maybe I'm adding too much power to begin with.

On IV I never went above .35, .4 on my AWD super heavy bus so yeah .8 is extremely high.

Hm, it doesn't sit well with me but I'll try dialing it back to .4. I also have made a super heavy super bus. 1.25 force, 250 top speed, 45,000 mass, 50/50 front drive bias. It's a beast, but doesn't accelerate like I thought it would.

 

The car I had in mind when I made this is my dil.. Prius. 0.90 force, 270 top speed, 60/40 drive.

So basically a Veyron with no traction control, front biased AWD, and skinny tires, yeah, gonna pretty much do nothing but burnouts.

No, rear biased awd.

Top speed will also have an effect on acceleration. If you set your top speed at 270 and keep the force stock it will accelerate a ton faster than stock without changing the force. Setting the topspeed and force very high like that is pretty extreme.

the common way to refer to AWD bias is "F/R" so 60/40 is 60% F 40% R. you mean 40/60.
