There is also some relation between the steering a FWD setup, and it makes sense that the combination of the two would cause side effects, but I can't honestly say that I've ever experienced any issues with it.

I'm not a professional is physics either, this post contains only what I think of in my head when I consider the advantages od RWD over FWD.
actually, that sounds very ganowledgable

yummmmmmy!

Directions:
Place the head of cabbage in a large pot over high heat and add water to cover. Boil cabbage for 15 minutes, or until it is pliable and soft. Drain and allow to cool completely. Remove the hard outer vein from the leaves.
In a separate large bowl, combine the beef, rice, garlic powder and the egg, mixing well. Place a small amount, about the size of your palm, into the center of a cabbage leaf and fold leaf over, tucking in the sides of the leaf to keep meat mixture inside.
Pile up the filled leaves in a large pot, putting the larger leaves on the bottom. Add the tomato juice, vinegar and sugar and enough water to cover. Simmer over medium low heat for about 60 minutes. (Note: Keep an eye on them, making sure the bottom of leaves do not burn.)

the rest of what you say there does make sense though. i do see how it may be an advantage to have a rear wheel drive sports car from that perspective
I just use the simple fact, it's easier to push something than pull it.

I know you didn't, I was just making a point. There are people out there who are convinced that FWD cars are capable of drifting, and this just isn't true.

TaylorinAlaska FWD doesn't render any amount of power useless. It does, however, reduce the cars capabilities.
