Oh, not just that! RWD's are more comfortable to drive and have more grip than FWD's. AWD's are more expensive to buy and to maintain, not to mention extra loss of main engine power, so the people's popular choice is RWD's here. Too bad so many manufacturers are turning away from RWD's
But yeah, drifting and spinning are fun indeed. Just the other day I did some in a sandy ground construction site in the industrial area to test the anti-slip doohickey in my car. Turned out the system is malfunctioning
I don't think I'm a good target of envy for not having snow. Having it from time to time wouldn't hurt, just to change the routine of having inferno all year long!
