The biggest disadvantage of this layout is the rear-engine vehicle’s tendency to oversteer due to greater weight resident in the rear of the vehicle that results in greater momentum.As oversteer (Rear Wheel) skids are less easily corrected than understeer (front wheel) skids, this can be a problem for drivers not experienced and skilled in the driving dynamics of rear-engine cars&quot; . imagine that you are playing a friendly game of darts. Instead of throwing your next dart normally, with the nose-heavy pointed end leading, you turn the dart around, throwing it fin-first toward the dartboard. Which end of the dart will eventually contact the dartboard? Indeed, the heavier end will spin in mid air during flight and contact the dartboard first. Under conditions of low traction or relatively high speed, it’s the same with rear-engine vehicles; the rear of the vehicle will always want to &quot;swap ends&quot; with the front.
