I was thinking AWD should be faster to reach 60mph but can it be I just plain wrong?
AWD only has better launch times when the car is putting down so much power there's slippage to the main drive wheels. The GTR, WRX STi and Evolution all need AWD because they're breaking the tires loose on every launch. Since the G37 and Q50 aren't threatening to melt their tires on launch, the rear biased AWD is a small drawback. A very, very tiny drawback.Has anyone tried this with 'snow' mode turned on? AWD cars generally have much better launch but I think snow mode affects the gearing as well so it might not help.
