In real life, the added traction provided by having four wheels propelling the car rather than two will help and All Wheel Drive car to accelerate considerably better than a similar Rear or Front Wheel Drive vehicle.

Simulation racers, such as Forza Motorsport 2, emulate this quite well.

Now I always thought that the Lambo Gallardo, which is AWD in real life, accelerated a bit better than the cars near it (Corvette, Ford GT, Porsche Carrera) but it was never really different enough to prove anything.

Now I see a very significant difference, and I'm wondering: has anyone else noticed the same thing in this game? I was never too sure if this game was realistic enough for that.

BTW: AWD cars in this game: Gallardo, Audi TT, Lancer, Subaru WRX. Correct me if I missed one, I think that's all.

Maybe I should do a scientific test. But that would involve effort . . . . . . .
