gotta agree with that one.

Wow, it's uncontrollable and don't turn worth a flip! Yee haw.

I guess there are people out there that just like it that way.

What is the turning radius like?

the handling and drifting is considerably great!! handles like a real fwd civic or RSX off the turns. Drifts pretty well also, but not as good as the AWD Kit.

FWD on a Supra?! That's blasphemy!! But still creative. I'd like to know though if the AWD kit is a gear diff or Ball Diff?

AWD has a ball diff for the rear and a gear diff for the front.

gear diff runs smooth; ball diff adds somewhat of limited slip

carpet. Reminds me of the real import Honda dragsters take off when racing for 1/4 mile time on a track
The import drags are booooring, now if you can get one to launch like a rwd domestic then we'll be talking now this IS torque

What about Import Drag with skylines, supras, and Nissan Zs? They ARE RWD\AWD.

FWD cars can go fast, especially when they don't need to go straight real fast. They excel at non-american styles of racing, like touring. When properly set up, a FWD car can be decent at drag, but it really isn't thier thing.

Remember- there is more to racing than going straight really fast .

yeah I know but he was talking about drag racing so my response was towrds drag racing. The only sport I dont see much domestic involvement is rally racing it seams alway to be imports. I love auto racing scca, irl, baja, v-8 supercars, imsa and so on. I never seen an import have so much torque where the whole front end lifts in the air, 2jz-gt (supra inline 6) has a very strong bottom end the highest hp is 1236 horsepower, the most hp from a cobra stock bottom end has been 1389 hp. I never will like FWD since they came out for people that cant drive and you cannot build hp from a fwd tranny set up without blowing the trans up, some of the supra guys use the GM th350 hydroglide auto tranny opposed to the toyota trans. After Im don ewith my firebird build (350 chevy 450hp 700hp wih nitrous) Im going to build a nissan 240 sx with afully built sr20 swap set for drifting competition.
