Rear-wheel drive is faster or front-wheel drive?

By Faiming_low on 03 Jul 2016

Attached Image While this is not the most scientific test to see which driven pair of wheels gives better traction when drag racing, its as close as it can be. In this drag battle arranged by EVO, the Honda Civic Type R represents the front-wheel drive camp while the BMW M135i will be fighting for the rear-wheel drive supporters.

They both have almost the same amount of horsepower, with the BMW triumphing the Honda by 16 horses at 317bhp. On paper, both cars have nearly identical power-to-weight ratios, making the race as close as it can be. Watch the video below and see who is faster.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
