Default Rear wheel drive or Front wheel drive : What is your choice ?

I am a great lover of rear wheel driven cars. Both rear wheel driven and front wheel driven cars have their advantages and disadvantages. In my opinion Rear wheel driven cars are more safe when compared to front wheel drives while cornering. Comments please !
Don't know how to start a poll. Would somebody do that for me regarding the subject

Hi Adrian,

When cornering at the limit :
FWD = Understeer
RWD = Oversteer (more likely)

Understeer is much less "dangerous" that oversteer. (ie easier to correct, by slowing down / stepping on the brakes)

This topic has been discussed quite a bit :

Front Wheel Drive v/s Rear Wheel Drive

Can you feel FWD or RWD difference while driving?

Poll: RWD, FWD, AWD-what would you choose? (RWD, FWD, AWD-what would you choose?)

Thread closed.
