FWD with more than 200hp, you will definitey get rampant wheelspin, like everyone says. All these "sporty" Saabs, Volvos, Acuras, Lexus, Caddys, with high-power engines on the front axle, they are a joke. Torque steer up the a$$, wheel spin in anything but perfect pavement, level or downhill. uphill + a pebble and you'll be sliding backwards!!!

Why don't they just go RWD with traction control (to curb the litigations), I don't know...

You know why the Integra R is such a great car? 180 hp with low torque is the only way you are gonna have a high-power engine in FWD. Anything else and you are losing traction.
