    Front wheel drive is fun with decent power and it's what I have now (without decent power) but (minus the torque steer) but if I ever had a sports coupe or sedan in the future I'd probably want it RWD.

    Nothing wrong with front, you can have fun with the Civic Si/Type R on the track, but they have their limits. Also Clarkson had fun with I think a Peugeot 106 GTI? Oversteer, understeer for a miserable little hatchback..

    nothing is wrong with FWD. it's, generally, the cheapest route. they're very easy to operate (limiting user errors), easy to maintain, and easy to replace.

    for the everyday driver, that doesn't really care too much about lap times, a peppy FWD will be more than enough. when u are talking from a "hardcore" racing standpoint then yes, FWD does have it's downfalls. it's ceiling is just gimped by physics.

    My FWD sucks off the light.

    I looking to get a Jeep next. Probably a Grand Cherokee, I want to be able to select AWD when I need it.

    FWD is for torquesteer
    RWD is for oversteer
    AWD is for snow

    Adunno where you get that FWD sucks in turns. Sure it isn't RWD fun but FWD can be functional. I drive my friend's EK Civic Type R swap around the track, it is more than functional. It's also easy to powerslide in powerful FWD cars. Yes again it isn't RWD, but then again FWD isn't RWD expensive (in most cases).

    RWD, if you aren't used to it can be scary if it goes into oversteer, especially light cars that can go into snap oversteer, case in point SW20 MR-2 pre-suspension nerfing.

    AWD you need to be going max throttle for it to be fast for corner exit (cars like the Evo/STI). Course turbo cars are always better at corner exit acceleration than N/A cars.
