    AWD vs RWD

    Post by robdog on Mon 03 Sep 2012, 11:58 am

    sorry to be such a newbie...I love to try to drift. Not that I am any good at it, but I find in FM4 it can help you in the not so tight corners. I been told the AWD cars are the best, but I wonder if I should go RWD on my 05' Lamborghini Gallardo. I am liking the handling of the one I have now, but I wanted to hear some pros & cons for the two types.

    Do you need a drift car or a circuit car that drifts in some corners?

    AWD cars are unfortunately not competitive on circuits ( they were better than RWD- cars in FM3 but T10 has modified the PI system) because of the massive increase of weight and PI by swapping the drive train. They are nearly always 1 to 2 secs slower than RWD- cars.

    Maybe it depends on the driving style but I think it is much harder to get the car sliding with AWD, so in drifting mode I prefer RWD too. But I am not a gauge for successful drifting. Laughing

    I don't know much about drifting, but I think RWD is the easiest to drift for sure.

    If it's to drift during circuit racing, you will be losing speed during corners by drifting as it will have a braking affect on the car.

    As it's been said, if you're drifting as a standalone task, then go rear wheel drive. RWD + Good Setup = Drifting. Or so I'm told.

    I'm no expert, but every time I've tried drifting I've gone RWD, purely because that's what I've been told. But if the car is set up correctly it's easier to control. If you have AWD, all you're doing is powersliding, but you'll have all the extra weight and the AWD system will only try to straighten your car up the whole time you're sliding.

    Hope that makes sense. If you want drifting advice and what-not, you're best off looking over the the Forza Drift Lounge, there's a lot of useful stuff in there Smile

    Thanks for the great advice. I have been able to get drift points in FWD, AWD & RWD. As posted here, RWD is the easiest, but not the only way to get drift points. I found a nice article here about drifting in Forza Motorsport 4.
