less stuff to turn. like a stock 2wd truck vs a 4wd truck. if you can hook up at launch you really wouldnt need to power the fronts. the backs are doin just fine (if it hooks up)My question is, is AWD really that much better? I know a couple of years ago Lamborghini put out a special model that was RWD, and it accelerated faster then the AWD model (powertrain was exactly the same).
