    Ahhhh frech friend..that is the crux of the issue...

    we do not differenciate between the same car and that car having FWD and a AWD varient by changing the handling index

    so we dont assign any benifit to various drivetrain layouts..which makes no sense

    thats my point

      But I dont want to get into that here.

      I have to get on reading/memorizing your rule book so I can keep up with this. Maybe I should have kept this to myself until after the new rules were set in stone so this stayed over looked, lol :P

        or in this case... we claim the wieght of the AWD system...but forget that having another set of wheels a huge advantage...especially when you get more power
        Come on Adam, less whining and more driving. Did you come out to a single event last year?

          Just how good do you think that BMW AWD system really is in an asphalt track environment, not all AWD systems are creating equal. I'd take the 330i with a LSD myself.
