    Rally front drive

    Has anyone thought of making the rally front drive only like the full size ford?

    I have seen people blow out their rear diff and just keep driving since it just makes it front wheel drive. Can't say I ever had someone say or feel it was better and not worth fixing.

    With front-wheel drive you would only have front-wheel braking.

    I have made my 4 Tec 2.0 a FWD (with Honda body). I just removed the two rear driveshafts (and kept the rear diff in). But I think you might consider keeping it an AWD, since it is impossible to drift around corners it if it is FWD.

    80% of the stopping power of 4 wheel braking is done with the front brakes. So not a huge loss.
