that's quite a question. I'll be honest. the title gave no indication of the magnitude of the question. That there is more than just a question. It's a magnet for,well everything. Just watch...

dammit own3d by the mod :cry:

You could relocate the steering wheel and dash to the back, turn the seats around and have a rear wheel drive , rear wheel steering Escort. lol. You won't be able to forward very fast but you can kick @ss going backwards.

How "mechanically inclined" are you? Those definitely aren't easy jobs to be doing.

there is a fellow who has a 500+hp GTX powered escort.. it got to be too much for fwd, so he used a miata tranny, and later an rx7 trans and did lots of cutting and welding and part sourcing to make it rwd.

a huge waste of money
and then u'll lose all ur traction since there is no weight in the back of an escort
??? Somebody is forgetting about weight transfer.. tsk tsk...

A FWD car loses traction on a launch and a "dropping a gear and flooring it" scenerio.

RWD and AWD help this little negativity... but so does a good suspension set up and/or traction bars. With the winters around here I'd love to have an AWD Escort... that'd be pretty sweet, plus it'd be one step closer to having a Euro Cosworth...
