i live in NY, so i kinda need either fwd or awd in the winter. My friend's '94 Cobra SVT slips and slides all over the place. you have to worry every second about crashing into the curb or trees 'cuz its impossible to control that car in the snow/slush, or any type of bad whether. Sure, it's not that great from a racing standpoint, but then again, i'm not gonna use this car for racing. So i think fwd is just fine, in fact most passenger cars (excluding suv's) are fwd, so i kinda expected it.
