In the past, RWD cars have been able to fit bigger brakes on the rear of the car. With NGTC and the spec stuff, I don't know if this is possible, or whether they have to fit the same size discs and calipers on all cars? In theory, a RWD car should have better braking than a FWD car, this is of course down to setup and driving style of course, however the basic crux of it is that if a car is engineered to the best of its abilty, the RWD machines should have better braking due to engine braking the rears and also larger brakes at the rear.

But where are the facts, and not perceptions?

Their lap times are not way ahead of others, just that their drivers have done well lately.

The boxer engine 'advantage' has already been addressed by ride height / CoG adjustment.
The rectification was so efficient that Plato claimed that the car was ruined, but they've since adapted to remain competitive.

I think it's amazing that all the arguments over RWD vs FWD are separated by less than a second in this thread.

To be honest I'm skipping most of the BTCC discussions on 10/10's these days because e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e of them turns into a FWD vs. RWD or BoP discussion...

Exactly... if you don't like the BTCC then don't watch it.

+1

Most people are too busy enjoying the racing to really notice/care about whether FWD or RWD are dominating

Which rule prevents any other team from building and running a Subaru then? Must have missed that one just as you seem to have missed the ballast plates at the top of the engine bay to make the CoG the same as the BMW.
