We're on a high-powered FWD jag today. There s just something about the futility of trying to go, stop and steer with the same two tires that makes the motorhead in us smile. From Dallas, Texas, we find a street-driven, 500hp Scion tC coupe that reaffirms the proposition that car nuts often have more money than brains.

While an incredible feat to make this kind of power on pump gas (with a stock head gasket no less), we wonder if this doesn t reaffirm what our granddaddy told us many years ago: Son, if god had wanted front-wheel drive, he would have built kangaroos the other way around.
