Default Rear wheel drive OHC??

Hey! I was wondering (highly doubt it though), is there any possibility of converting an OHC to rear wheel drive?

There is possiblitly of converting any car to RWD, but its very expensive, time consuming and not bullet free (in terms of reliabilty) and hence not worth the effort.

Are you sure it's all-time or demand-based?

OK, FWD at first, when slippage occurs becomes 4WD. Like the CRV, I think. It's still called AWD.

Phir toh you are dead. Rear shafts and differential will be half the size of the front ones. One hard launch and you'll be using public transport for a month.
