No, it's mid engine and rear wheel drive. The only time it becomes rear engine is when the spinny parts are all behind the rear axles, not right in line like this is.

By that logic the car was always mid engine. I don't disagree with you

I think it's pretty obvious the difference between a front and mid. If you'd like I can go back and edit it to specify behind the driver and in front of axle line.




Instead, I'll just leave this.

Awesome! Very cool project.


To be honest though, I think you should have gone with a different engine/trans. You have more room back there, why not go bigger? :-P

Not what I meant.

If an engine centred over rear axle is rear engine then engine centrred red over front axle would also be mid engine for same logic. I'm just rockin the boat

Very cool regardless

Except that it's not the same logic.
