Sorry guys if we have a past thread about this topic although i would really like to know the reasoning behind this. Why we dont see as many mid engine buggys compared to rear engines? Any reasoning behind this? Thanks
I think Chris said it best.Everything's a trade off. If you concentrate the mass toward the center of the car then it should, in theory, change directions quicker and be better at rally type terrain and twisty technical sections. But it will also change direction easier in the pitch direction (up and down) and be less stable in big whoops and less stable in fast rough terrain.
And also don't forget that B.J. Richardson won the SCORE 2008 Overall and Class 1 champion in a mid engine........
