If you want a scary powerful car, don't bother with FWD. Those tires are already working hard enough.
Im not a fan of rwd, Ive also been ruined by honda, rwd sucks hard lack of control, prone to fishtailing, zero off asphalt capability the last one is major for me due to where I live there has not been a rwd car or truck that I have driven that didnt just suck eggs
That said Im not a terribly big fan of fwd and that plays into what I meant by honda ruined me honda steering and gearboxes are better than ANYTHING Ive ever driven import or domestic, truck or car
My goal with the crz is a fun road trip car, not a track monster, Im weary of forced induction and I dont want to have to use premium gas as this negates the benefits of the better gas mileage but I do need more power, I have fixed all the downsides of the car from the factory my car has a very linear balanced power band and enough power to have fun on mountain passes but I still feel the need for a small bit more of power and I was thinking nos might be a better alt to forced induction for cost savings as well as I dont always need that extra power(should be noted I am a mountain man and lots of my road trips and where I live is lots of steep grades and high altitude, I live in the appalachia and I often take trips to the rockys this car now has enough power that it handles this under normal driving like a boss but still struggles when its a decent grade and Im driving spirited unless im in a really lower gear)
My goal in the next few years is to get a sti or evo I am a rallyer at heart and where I live rally is pretty big I dont have many legit options for racing and most are rallys or rallycross when I do this its gunna be a monster
