FF doesn't automatically mean understeer, nor does RWD mean oversteer. FF cars are more inclined to understeer due to the weight bias, but suspension changes can easily overcome this, the same goes for RWD. As for AWD cars, there are lots of factors in how it handles, for example EVO's have shown to be moderatele tail happy but STI's have shown some plowing on the track (stock of course).

All of the AWD cars I have ever driven hard tended to push (underster) in the turns... You cant come in as hot with them but you can hit the gas a LOT sooner the rwd, and if you make a boo boo, it's a lot easier to get out of it. Countersteer and hit the GAS!!! Generally speaking of course!



And glad to see the AL represented here!!!
