I get what you're saying, but the GT-R has changed some of that conventional wisdom, lol, so far it hasn't been a disadvantage to an AWD car, every event we've had so far the overall winner is an AWD car, even if it has less power. AWD has an advantage in all aspects when it comes to big power, if you can't put the power down what's the point? Just about every RWD car had issues, and the big power RWD cars couldn't even use their high boost applications, but the cold weather didn't help in that regard either. Appreciate the props on my car, thank you!
