I come to you once more seeking your help. You may or may not know that next week we will be running another mini-theme celebrating all that is good about front engined, front wheel drive cars.
Just like last month’s rather successful ’80s theme, we want to involve you in the proceedings once more. This time however no era will be shunned and everything will be welcomed with open arms, provided of course that its power is transmitted through the front wheels.
We don’t care if it’s a static shot or something from the track. Do keep in mind however that this is an #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER request, and as such the submissions will be judged on their photographic merit.
Enough waffling from me, start your submissions now! Send your e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘IATS FWD Theme’.
We created #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER to allow you the opportunity to share your skills and car culture experiences from around the globe with the rest of the Speedhunters audience.

Will there be another mini-theme celebrating all that is good about rear engined, rear wheel drive cars too? (Not only Porsches and old VWs.)
This if for you Corey K.
"for reasons that are extremely difficult to explain to normal human beings, petrol heads prefer oversteer. We like the front end to grip, and the rear to be all loose, and that means we prefer rear wheel drive" -Jeremy Clarkson
Had to post this comment :)
@stikitnowcom FFs can oversteer too, if set up correctly. In fact, a lot of older Hondas could oversteer without any suspension modifications at all. People who drove '88-91 Civic hatchbacks and DC2 Integra Type Rs can easily vouch for that. Another thing that I cannot help but notice is that most people look at FFs from an FR perspective, and while some things are exactly the same, those same things can also be exact opposites.
This is Speedhunters. It's an open door policy around here fellas...
@Mikey G Mendoza ahhhhh booo....
@Mikey G Mendoza Awwwww naaaaww, hataz gonna hate.
@apex_DNA Yeah I get it, and I actually like FF cars as well even though I am partial to FR. I had a blast driving my 90 Escort GT in high school :)
Reading Corey's and the others comments just reminded me of the GT-86 review I saw on top gear the other day because that quote is what they opened it up with.
