FWD does not belong on the dirt road.

yeah you can actually get a lot of control out of a front drive on the dirt if you get skilled in Left Foot Breaking. Basicly a FWD will understeer in the dirt, but as you enter the corner add a little bit of presure on the brake pedal with your left foot while staying on the throttle with the right foot. the more you press the break, the more you are gonna make the rear end step out and oversteer. likewise when exiting give it more gas and get off the brake a bit and it will pull you right out of the corner. this is my simple understanding of it, there is more to it im sure.
