FWD vs. RWD vs. AWD

I prefer AWD, even though most vehicles equipped with an AWD drivetrain tend to weigh and cost more.

I really really hope that the Mazdaspeed Mazda3 will be AWD.

RWD.. with traction sensing that automatically switches to AWD.

Never?

There is a guy in Colorado that has an all original, right hand drive R32 Skyline A-Spec, Jet Black. Its rumored to run in the low 12's and over 500hp.

Ive seen it once... and almost shit my pants. They cost about $80k to import one.

Oh i forgot, the Infiniti G35 is similiar... without the turbos.

It doesnt have traction sensing. I dont think any other car rolls off the showroom floor has it, other than the Skyline.

No the Infinity G35 is available now. Comes in 2 or 4 door configurations.

At first, Nissan tried to say the G35 would carry the legendary Skyline name over here, being called the Skyline G35. But then last minute changes forced Infinity to pick up the name.

The G35 shares the same engine as the 350Z.

I'd have to say that RWD, FWD, and AWD all have different applications for which they're useful. AWD's a good compromise between FWD and RWD, but you pay for that in terms of weight and power.
