Corvette chassis engineers in the C6 era have stated, publicly, that they have reached the limts of front-engine performance because they cannot get enough accleerative grip to deal with the amount of power they are able to get from Powertrain.mk e wrote: ↑Sat Dec 08, 2018 11:31 amThe main advantage of midengine is mostly braking. A car that is 50/50 weight sitting on the scales is 70/30 on the brake and overloads the front tires. A midengine car that starts arc30/70 is 50/50 when braking giving more braking for more laps. You can also brake a little deeper into the turns which also helps.
Their options are to try to package all wheel drive, or to go with a mid-engine design.
