Oct 27, 2013 I have always wondered about drivetrain loss between fwd and awd. For instance, If a FWD 2g put down 410whp and a AWD 2g put the same power on the same Mitsubishi FWD F5 and W5 series 5 speed manual transmission overhaul kits We offer quality Mitsubishi F5 and W5 series 5 speed front wheel drive manual transmission rebuild kits and parts, our kits are designed to be top of the line overhaul kits for the popular F5M22, F5M31, F5M33 and W5MG1.

This is a discussion on rwd vs fwd vs awd on drivetrain loss within the Dyno Information forums, part of the Racing Forums category; Hypothetically speaking say you have the same engine set into three different cars one with fwd one awd and one Jan 17, 2012 Subaru drivetrain loss: AWD vs RWD Transmission (ATMT)& Driveline We offer a complete line of manual transmissions and transaxles, a complete line of repair parts and overhaul bearing kits for both manual transmission rear wheel drive (RWD) and front wheel drive (FWD) transaxles as well as component parts to assist you with the repair.
Our remanufactured and new transmissions have a 12 month unlimited mileage warranty in 12 months. Jul 05, 2018 Understanding your Drivetrain RWD, FWD, AWD Car Tips CAR OWNER TIPS Jul 5, 2018 Front Wheel Drive. are that they do not perform well in poor weather conditions such as rain or snow because they are more prone to loss of traction on slick roads. Find out the truth behind drivetrain power losses from Car Craft Magazine. Drivetrain Power Loss The Brutal Truth Adding a manual trans like a T5, or Tremec TKO could reduce this Mar 18, Fwd manual drivetrain loss but, if you think of it, in a manual transmission, the power loss through the drivetrain is really much closer to a flat rate than a percentage, in other words it only takes so much power to move the gears of your tranny, axles and tires because they are of a fixed weight.
in a manual transmission with a good clutch, there is direct mechanical Drivetrain Power Loss The 15" Rule" AWD systems like this Subaru's provide tremendous traction but suffer from higher drivetrain losses than FWD or RWD systems. Sep 19, 2006 I would like to know in particular what is a rough figure to use for a front wheel drive manual vehicle, I am not after exact figures, I just need to be able to do a quick" guesstimation" on the spot.
front wheel drive and rear wheel drive figures are required please. RE: Drivetrain Loss I am sure there is a big variece on these numbers Apr 29, 2005 The only definate thing that can be proven over and over is there is always more loss in a front engine, RWD car versus a front engine, FWD car and the main reason being is the drive train is very short and most of the power loss is a result of the transmission whereas on a RWD car you lose more due to the drive shaft (although you can lose a May 23, 2006 I don't think so, they say rule of thumb is FWD is about 23 more efficient than RWD, example 15 or so for manual fwd, vs 17 manual rwd.
The theory is less rotational massassemblies and such. I wouldn't trust dynos for determining actual power, even more so for working backwards to determine crank hpdrivetrain loss.
Nov 12, 2002 Drivetrain loss on a FWD AT? ? Automatic Transmission Tech Oct 16, 2006 drivetrain loss as he said is partially nonpercentage, a 1000 hp car wont have the same percentage loss on a 5 hp car if they have the same transmission. but in the normal range, ie in the 100 to 1500 range, all systems tend to have about 15 loss Drivetrain losses (efficiency) The drivetrain (also called driveline ) is the sum of components which are delivering the engine power to the wheels.
For example, on a rearwheel drive (RWD) vehicle, the drivetrain consists of: clutch (or torque converter), gearbox (manual or automatic), propeller shaft, differential and drive shafts.
