I've been humored by these rants for a couple days now...and while I'm new
to the NG, I'm wondering why I've delayed subscribing.
I recently purchased a new car and before doing so I test drove everything
in the class (Small luxury sedans). I feel as though I am an aggressive
driver, but not driver who lacks the prudence to know when to back it down.
That said, I feel I was able to evaluate the quality of a production vehicle
from laymans prospective. I'm not a racecar driver by any means but I am
qualified to debate this topic from a general public viewpoint.
This discussion is on the verge of ridiculous, and well past the threshold
of intelligent. Mr. Ghee is absoluty recieving a thrashing, he couldn't be
flogged more by a batallion of 17 century soliders! You may have some
decent points about RWD vehicles but your lack of tangable details reduces
your comments to little more than monosaballic banter. To win this argument
you simply need to say that the average driver can not handle the high level
of performance needed to make the AWD a distinct winner in abient driving
conditions. Where you fail, and fail miserably is that, a Ford escort is
also a capable vehicle in the hands of most daily commuters. When you press
the abilities of these vehicles you'll find time and time again the Torsen
system and it's ability to adjust the grip on four wheels is far superior to
RWD. To prove this simply take a vehicle that comes in both RWD and AWD
(G35, 330i) and small number of other vehicles and compare them to each
other...there, questions answered! Ball game over and discussion is
finished. Now, find those numbers and get back to me.
