I went out into a desolate parking lot with my Bonne and just for the hell of it, because I really have never tried it before, floored it in reverse a few times. Pathetic
I could believe how gutless it was. Couldn't even get a squauk out of the tires, let alone make the back end rise up. I really felt like a 4 cylinder rear wheel drive car when you punch it from a stop.
Of course, I know that it has much better traction in reverse with all the weight transfered over the drive wheels.
Sort of like the reverse of a rear wheel drive when you try to accelerate those in reverse, they smoke the tires rear easy.
Now I have a much better appreciation for how traction limited front wheel drive cars really are.
