How do different driven wheels affect your lap times?

By Faiming_low on 07 Sep 2016 in Videos

Attached Image Front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive, how will they affect the handling of each car? The Racing Line's Randy Pobst shows us what the differences are.

Firstly, he starts off with a Mazda MX-5, one of the better rear-wheel drive cars. He then proceeds to show us how a rear-wheel driven car will behave on the limit when understeering or oversteering. Moving on to front-wheel drive, a Ford Focus ST was used to demonstrate the shortfalls of having the same pair of wheels power and steer the car. Lastly, the Subaru WRX STi was used to show how you can get on the power faster and exit a corner quicker than you would in any of the other two cars.

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?
