The joys of a FWD vehicle. Even relatively low powered FWD's suck on normal roads for traction. Especially on uneven surfaces, white painted lines, turning at intersections, in the wet etc.. If you drop the clutch at anything above 2500 RPM....SPIN.
Drag strips are totally different- you can get some amazing levels of traction. That's where all the fast times are recorded.
I've had a few powerful FWD vehicles over the years, but now I'm more fussy and place AWD high on my "must have" list.
