Default 0-60 stock AWD OR RWD

For the 1/4 I can see the RWD having the advantage, but what about the 1/8 and the 0-60 for a stock TBSS? Strictly dry conditions also. thanks

Personally, I think the AWD and 2WD are really close in performance (traction offsets weight/drag) until you begin to stack on a lot of mods. Then the 2WD becomes the clear winner.

This has been proven at the Nationals where the trucks are pretty consistant.

Why dry conditions only? Just wait til it rains and then try the AWD vs 2WD thing...there is the big difference.
