Revo Knuckle reduces scrub radius by isolating steering from suspension which means you can put over 300BHP through the front wheels without enduring a bucket load of torque steer.

That's a fine front driver. I like rear wheel drive cornering dynamics now that I have a rear wheel drive car. Feeling the car rotate around me is such a cool feeling. Of course going uphill on snowy roads is bad news, yer Focus is better for that. . 

I think maybe my next car will be AWD, to see what that is like. Probably totally useless on most days while I trudge to work. I kinda like the Buick wagon, just because it is different. It's an Opel in Europe.

Do I really need a wagon? no. But is is not a SUV and not a crossover and will behave like a car for the most part.

Ever driven a car with a quaife differential and awd-cornering ability is ridiculous.

I gaurantee you you will be quicker through corners on both road and track in a Focus RS than you would in many rwd with similar preformance levels.

Don't believe me get on a steel bird -hire an MX5 (Miata) and I'll race you.

That said you can put 300bhp 350 bhp through the front wheels know without too much torque steer due to things like revo kuckle.

On 0n an AWD the quaife will usually be used for the centre differential.

Get on a steel bird we'll hire two BMW M2's and then 2 Focus RS Mountune and take them over Snake.

I guarantee you will be quicker in the Ford.

Tod rive a rwd car seriously fats on road or track you have to really know what you are doing.

Of course we could just use two Mk1 2litre focuses and bring the back end into play in the corners with some lift off oversteer shenanigans.

VT SS Commodore

 

My weekend mistress. LS1 with a T56 manual. Nice primitive Aussie made muscle. When she becomes too slow, I just throw some money at the engine and it becomes  sexy time !

Nice Commodore Aussie. We used to have the Monaro as a Pontiac gto...looked like a bigger Cavalier. We had another Holden or was it Vauxhall here as the Chevrolet SS and a Pontiac G8 and no one bought it...it looks too much like lower model fleet rental cars. Pontiac was eliminated completely, the SS was discontinued. 

These cars were expensive and looked like lower models, no one wanted them.
