    380 was made fwd because all of MMCs cars are front wheel drive, and the platform it was developed on, the US Galant is a fwd with awd capabilities

    Would have made more sense to have gone awd, but this would have resulted in a premium price on the entire 380 range.

    I think it would have been very different comparing it to a sedan.
    While i was going against him it wasnt oversteer that was the issue! He had more problems with understeer than i did. Maybe it was a lead tipped arrow...

    Or an incompetent driver aswell.

    Who knows.. the main thing is your car handled well on the day

    Power isnt everything (as you have proved), but for every petrol head out there its certainly number 1 on the list.
