  • 4WD cars?

    I am always interested in finding new things, new to me anyway. I just came across info about 4WD cars and was wondering how they perform. Any opinions?

    I think they're mainly for the RAID courses - to compete with the likes of what Mitoos makes. I would imagine it's a Good RAID car compared to the very expensive Great Mitoos chassis. I can't imagine running them on a regular road course like I and many others have.
    It'd be interesting to see and hear about them.

        Yep had same results. Even swapped 4wd parts onto a well tuned lola lmp and was a good second slower with the 4we parts. Nothing I did made it any faster.

          Thanks. That's pretty much what I figured. I recall some 4WD 1/24th cars way back in the 60s that had a similar performance disadvantage.

            I have a Audi e-tron 4WD that performs very good on a tight and twisted coarse. It took a while for the front bearings to loosen up. I drive with a smooth not choppy throttle. The front wheel assemblies have one way hubs, that lock up only under power. It may not be the fastest car, but I do enjoy it when I can out corner some of the faster guys. Oh, I run with Silicone tires on the front and back. It also will pull well around some wide sweeping turns.
