I almost want to call this a fail but it's a win at the same time, what your opinion?

Awd. It's a EVO drivetrain and engine swap.

Yea I can see that now I was wondering if there was a way to still use the AWD system with the engine mounted long ways. I can't find a link to the car just the pic.

All in racing engines is out of Cincinnati, oh. But I can't find nothing about it on their web site.

Lesser weight over the nose but the AWD probably adds some of that back but coming from drag racing an AWD car for a decade the traction is hard to beat. You squat and go with all 4 wheels grabbing the road. Now only if that car was AWD you'd have a big win.

0-60 in a tad over 4 seconds with only 400 crank horse which also translated into 1.7 60' times on all season radials,I was beating guys with slicks so imagine a car with AWD and slicks doing much more.
