What are the real benefits of one over the other? I drive a WRX... since getting that, I can't imagine driving a car with any sort of power with RWD just for traction issues. I remember reading an article about the Audi race car that I think was based on the RS4 or something. It would beat a bunch of other cars with much more powerful engines just because it could just take off on launch instead of having to worry about losing traction and it could start putting power earlier in the turns, again for traction issues. Basically, they were able to compensate for less power with the Quattro. and please, keep the lame-ass, one word posts to a minimum.
