The Difference of Driving Using a FWD and RWD Car – The driver of the car uses the front wheel or commonly known as
Front Wheel Drive (FWD) designation
rear wheel drive, or commonly called the Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) has
some disadvantages and advantages. For use in the racing world,
control of the car front drive and rear drive has
different handling. The rider must be able to adjust the flexibility of the car at the time of maneuvering.

But to drive
daily, using a car with front and rear wheel drive can be said no
so influential. Because basically, for daily riders, use
the car depends on the driver who is more in the direction of adjustment and their preference for the driving system
that is. Prefer rear pull cars, or cars with wheel drive
front depends on
the driver's favorite.

Regarding cars that use the FWD (Front Wheel Drive) and RWD (Rear Wheel Drive) systems, we find many in
highways, such as propulsion (FWD) on Suzuki Ertiga cars, Toyota Calya,
Nissan Grand Livina. Then on the other hand there are also RWDs that are used
by Toyota Avanza, Daihatsu Xenia, Wuling Confero, and many more
again another car that uses RWD.

According to Anjasara Wahyu, as peslalom
last year which took home the title of Class A National Champion, had
own views on how to drive daily between the FWD and the RWD
according to him actually the basic is the same.

Usually for steering
or the steering wheel owned by FWD tends to be heavier or feels 'pulling'
when crossing a twisting field. This is due to energy
the engine produced is transferred to the front wheel and has a tendency
for understeer. "FWD has a tendency to understeer,
and causes the front tire to run out faster because traction is in the wheel
ahead, "said Anjasara.

Traction itself is
maximum friction force that can be produced between two surfaces without experiencing
slip. While
for the character of a car with a rear wheel drive, it is more inclined to
direction of oversteer, this is because of the traction produced on the tire
the rear causes the steering wheel to be lighter than the car
use the FWD drive.

Anjasara is back
added, that for FWD and RWD also had a minus plus at the time
take the turn.

"If it's FWD and RWD
done in a normal way, meaning driving for the day is not for racing,
both have similar ways of working.
Certainly for FWD it will be more stable when maneuvering, because traction is on
front wheel, "he explained.
