RWDs are tokyo drift type cars bro! Just put a heavy engine in it and you'd be ready to rule the world.
They're really rugged and can take a lot of abuse before asking for some expensive repairs, even if the car is a solid axle design. The roads of the rural parts of pakistan can ruin a FWD but a RWD won't face any damage, literally.
another thing is the balance and handling of RWD cars, If FWD the weight of transmission axle and engine all lies on the front wheels, but in RWD the weight of the drive train is distributed and is more on the front ones so the rear wheels are easily rotated. that's why they use it in RWD in super cars, specially the ones used for racing purposes.
But it is good for dry roads only, try using one on rainy or snowy roads and you'll get to know what real fun is, even Cruise controls can't help in such situations.
