View Full Version : Mini Cooper S is a FWD car

Which numpty implemented the Mini as RWD? :D It handles like a FWD, grips nicely and then understeers, but when you do a burnout it spins up the rears.

Apart from that visual issue, really like the car, lacking a bit on top end, but the grip and chuck-ability is great, snaps a bit when using the handbrake if you're over zealous with the opposite lock.

Honestly, I was really happy with the Cooper's implementation. I was worried they were going to gimp it because it's a 'baby car' and not a muscle car or something you might think of as a performance car. The thing drives like it's on rails once you get used to it.

Interestingly, though, if you're in the tuner and go to the demo mode, you can hold down the e/brake and gas and it'll do a proper FWD burnout, while in cinematics and other scenes it seems to default to RWD.
