    torque steer is nothing good to have, but sometimes its kinda actually fun giving it some in 1st and 2nd and having the car kinda warp around the road. like dance around hahah!

    but most of the time its not the most fun...

    In the Uk Rover launched a saloon car, the montego turbo, it had such awful Torque steer the press slated it, and they ended up changing the suspension to make it bearable.

    The funny thing now is that it was like only 150bhp, so that shows you how bad the car was.

    Def agree most of the time Torque steer not good. A lot of the turbo hatches like Golf GTI, focus ST, run T/C and reduced boost in first and second to try and keep it under control.

    RWD is fun, if the car is set up well, and you have some experience, but I think for a new driver it could be lethal.

    The RAV4 (AWD) was a blast to drive. I don't know what Toyota did, but that thing handled like a sports sedan. Almost no body roll at all. It was the only suv I've felt comfortable drifting in, and it did that very well on gravel if you pushed it, but it never felt like you were out of control. Not very fast though.

    the rav4 originally had 165 drivetrain and suspension.

    Fucking awesome. The one we had was the 2nd gen, so I don't think it had that. But that's still awesome.
