2WD car front engine rear wheel drive system information

What is wheel drive system information? When the engine is installed in a car, it is installed in two positions. The first type is the Transverse Engine type that is installed in a 90 degree position according to the direction of the car (the type installed in Ractis, Fit, Vitz, Swift, Demio). The second type is the Longitudinal Engine type. It is installed parallel to the direction of the car (the type installed in Mark II, CROWN).

The layout of the engine and the wheels that will be driven is usually defined in 4 ways. Front Engine Rear Wheel Drive (FRWD). Front Engine Front Wheel Drive (FFWD). Rear Engine Rear Wheel Drive (RRWD). And Four Wheel Drive (4WD).

1. Front Engine Rear Wheel Drive (FRWD) (wheel drive system information)

Front engine rear wheel drive (FRWD) cars use longitudinal engines. The transmission (Gearbox) is in the front, and the rear wheel is connected to the differential through the drive shaft. The advantages of this system are balancing the weight of the whole car. Wide availability of cargo space Even though it is rear-wheel drive, it is in front of the engine so it can get air cooling. Being able to prevent understeer from going to the other side without reaching the side of the turn. When climbing hills, the weight of the car is towards the back, so it is more convenient because the drive train is behind.

Disadvantages are over steering, Because it is rear-wheel drive, the drive shaft is placed under the car’s belly, and when the ground clearance is higher, the CG (center of gravity) is higher, and the car’s stability is not very good. More weight than a front-wheel drive car; Because the car floor is higher, the interior is narrower. Because the car is heavier, it consumes more fuel, and the value of the car is higher due to the engine and drive wheel connection materials.

Kamolvattanavith grew up in Bangkok, Thailand, in a conservative household. Her mother was an investor, while her father managed a golf course and factory. Despite the family’s physical closeness, Kamolvattanavith always felt emotionally detached from her parents. “There was distance between us. I didn’t understand them, they didn’t understand me,” she says. “They didn’t believe that women should be as vocal as men or have as much social power as men, and that was something that really bothered me.” More troubling, it was something that played out in Kamolvattanavith’s household quite often. “My opinions and thoughts – anything I was saying – were being repressed because of our differences in views,” the Thai says. “I was the girl with a lot of opinions and a lot of things to say. I was very vocal, especially about my thoughts, even if they went against the grain.” Because of that family dynamic, Kamolvattanavith wanted out. So in middle school, she began plotting a way to study at the next level in the United States. However, there was one thing standing in the way of her ambitions – money. Around the same time that Kamolvattanavith was planning her move to the U.S., her family experienced financial hardship. “We ended up losing a significant amount of money with a business decision [my parents] made, and that was a financial turning point for us,” she recalls. “My parents had to start a new business, because they really had to support the family and carry on this financial burden. They had to start something fresh so they could pay off everything and recover financially.” Still, the young Thai wouldn’t let that stop her. She began to apply to schools on her own and when accepted, the future investigative journalist asked an uncle to help cover the expenses. “I think he was more understanding. He was the most encouraging out of everyone. He saw the value I could gain by leaving home. He also helped convince my parents,” she says.
