Before she answers, what about YOU Will . Are you with the pullers or the pushers?

Used to be a pusher. Puller now. Why? Climate. Driving conditions. Have kids. Black ice is bad news with RWD. I actually prefer fwd to 4wd in the winter here.....I drove a 4wd for 10 years up here, I know. Sure, if you want to build a 600+ hp monster, you're gonna be restricted to rwd due to transaxle limitations, but that'* not practical for me. I like the performance, ride, and handling of my SSEi. The only car I've ever owned that came close was an Olds Quad4.

Yes, I've had my share of pushers. Probably my best was a built (bored) 383 in a '77 camaro. Loved it, but wouldn't trade it for this car. Everyone'* preferences and the demands of their life/environment dictate what they drive. Pick your RWD and come to oregon in the winter. I'll race ya for bragging rights!

I think a RWD bonneville with the sc engine will perform ALOT better than FWD . We will at least have more room to work on the cars and the trannys may have better components ! Then I would seriously think about major engine mods on a Bonneville !!!

Hey, hey man. Don't be taking my ideas. . Yeah, pulling the brake handle on a FWD car is power sliding to do a turn. Tried it on a few off ramps so far and it is possible with a Bonneville.

Because of all the independant suspension, I believe can pull off 1.0G on the skidpad.

Yeah, right. You've been listening to those CA ricers talk too much!
