The car behaves very differently when you try to accellerate through a turn. The skid pad test does not really show this. The difference of course is in the fact that your drive wheels and turning wheels are the same. This causes the understeer that is widely found in FWD cars.

To me RWD feels a lot more like an AWD drive car I once had than FWD does.
