^ Yes my inaccuracy about static and dynamic WD. 4C is "an italian CF Lotus". By that measurement car with FWD brake faster. But in practice it is not the case.

It will not have a big affect if suspension is tuned correctly. It will be just more nose-heavy like Audi and most other cars. Of course it is not better. I don't think the S65 in the the 1M affect handling, on the contrary it maybe even improves. But that is why I want the next M2 to be a turbocharged I4.
