Converting a FWD to a RWD

We look at converting a front wheel drive car to rear wheel drive. Problems and shortcuts and suggestions for a FWD to RWD conversion project guide. For this reason, most high power cars and motorsport cars have a rear wheel drive setup. Even front engined street cars are converted with a mid mounted engine and rear wheel drive.

Cars are more fun to drive when the power is to the back wheels. It makes for lots of oversteer rather than the safer and more predictable understeer manufacturers build into FWD cars.

We look at the various stages of remap available and the mods that would work best on stage 1, 2 and 3 upgrades. Each level of remap carries risks and drawbacks so we will outline them here.

Clutch tuning: performance clutch modifications and triple plate clutches setup

The clutch takes the engine power, and puts this down through the drive shaft, to the driven wheels on the road but allows you to disengage the engine whilst performing a gear change.

Contact like this requires a lot of grip and a fast response. The more power you have the harder it is for the clutch to operate.
