I'd have to agree with rear wheel drive, although FWD does have it's advantages.
e.g. if going aroung a tight corner and the arse brakes loose all you have to do is point the steering wheel in the direction you are going then floor it.
Another is that FWD cars tend to have higher directional stability when cornering.
Disadvantages, If you have anything over 260HP, it is most likely that you will just torque steer off into a tree, same in the wet - you tend to lose any front traction going around corners under moderate to heavy acceleration.
RWD - Advantages, quicker off the mark under acceleration, in some cases with old cars the driveshaft tended to make the car stronger, better for burnouts which in turn equals more fun.
Disadvantages, prone to oversteer under heavy acceleration (corners) - though it can be gathered up easily, same in the wet though a bit more hair raising - a tendancy to (in some cases) snap oversteer in which by the time you react to save it you're already wrapped around a tree.
Though the best would have to AWD - Jaguars new X-type proves this better than any other car around, not a 50:50 set up but instead a 40% front and a 60% rear distribution, which I think is great.
Not only do you get better traction but also more enjoyment with a slight RWD bias - you get the advantages of both FWD and RWD
in a package that a normal AWD can't have.
