It's funny, I brought this up about 7 years ago on the Mustang forum when I owned my Mustang. I was crucified for even mentioning it!!! I merely stated that to take the Mustang to the next level, Ford should consider an AWD option on the car. That way it could be a year round car. I had about 50 negative comments, some of which would never be allowed on this forum! What's funny about the whole thing is there are rumors that Ford in 2018 is going to do just that and now everyone thinks it's the best thing in the world. As far as understeer....as long as the split is setup properly with more power to the rear wheels (65+r/35-f), it won't push. It'll give just the right amount of control...and if it was electronic torque split, like most are today, you could easily put a controller in to control the amount of torque to front and rear, solving the push issue. The secret to an AWD 'sports car' is to not make it a FWD first.....build it first as a RWD, then give the AWD option and set the torque to come from the rear. Most cars today are built the other way, with 60%+ torque coming from the front wheels. But, this is all a mute point for us as there is no room to do this on our cars, not too mention in most cases the engine would have to be in front of the half shafts for the front wheels.
