My high school car was a 4.0 Ford Ranger with a slushbox. I read that 0-60mph would supposedly be somewhere in the 8 second range in that truck. It never would have done it that fast, the thing had no rear traction to speak of. However, it was plenty enough to have fun with, probably in part due to the lack of traction. I could kick the ass end loose any time I wanted with a flick of the steering wheel and a firm mashing of the gas pedal. I could rip stupid one wheel peels all day long if I wanted. I could go on the dirt and gravel roads and pretend I was a Markku Alen or whatever ripping around. I drove several faster FWD sedans in the time I had that truck, but the fun factor wasn't even comparable, the cars were faster, but they were just absolutely soulless and dull.
Moral of the story is that acceleration isn't all that makes a car fun. RWD does. Buy a RWD, faggot, and all your gay fantasies will come true.
