Any beginner or experienced motorist knows what a drive is in a car. Just in case, we explain in a simple language in which spikes, front or rear are transmitted engine energy, such as the car drive. As we all know, I exist 3 types of car drives: front, rear and complete.Let’s get acquainted with each of them in more detail:
Front -wheel drive of the car. The engine energy is transmitted to the front wheels. This type of drive is quite common on Japanese cars. Due to the lack of a cardan, it has a lower weight. So the type of drive leads to weighting its front part, which leads to the demolition of the car. Front -wheel drive cars are more passable than rear -wheel drive cars. Comparative simplicity of this drive is the best option for beginner motorists. But do not forget about the minuses, this is a tendency to demolition and poor dynamic characteristics.
The rear -wheel drive of the car. Engine energy is transmitted to the rear wheels. This type of drive is common on American cars and VAZ classics, however, there are also Japanese and European rear -wheel drive cars. The rear -wheel drive is often used on sports cars, due to good dynamic characteristics. The tendency to drift is a minus of this type of drive, therefore it is not very suitable for novice drivers.
Full -wheel drive of the car. Engine energy is transmitted to all four wheels. This type of drive is common among sedans and universals of the middle and highest price category, SUVs, as well as sports cars. The principle of operation of all -wheel drive is different. On some cars, the engine energy is distributed between the front and rear axle in a ratio of 3070%. There are cars in which all energy is supplied to the front wheels, and if they begin to slide, the rear. The advantage of such a drive is the excellent cross -country ability, and the almost complete absence of drifts, which provides confidence in an inexperienced driver. The disadvantage of all -wheel drive is its high cost and additional car weight.
