why is the motor in the rear? because fat bottom girls make the world go round.. that's why
Agree. Engine is positioned in front of the trans and rear axle but behind the cockpit. Clearly mid-engine. The real question is not why the engine was placed where it is but why doesn't it have more HP? Like 800 or so. Now that would be exciting.Is the x3 not considered mid engine? I mean, the engine is way front of the rear wheels just like any supercar, c8 vette,mr2, etc,in the other hand, porsche or vw engine are behind the rear wheels.
Yea, probably cause its long wheel base,soft suspension and cvtFunny thing to me is... after riding Banshees & Raptor quads for so many years (which ripped ass & wheelied on command) that despite the X3 Turbo RR's engine placement way back on the machine (mid, semi mid or rear..) and it's top of it's class 195 HP,.. the X3 still will not lift the front wheels off the ground in stock form!
That makes me think they just might have found the right engine placement to put all that power to the ground & maintain a stable high performance ride at the same time.
Now maybe if I had a clutch on an X3 that I could drop after goosing the engine into the powerband.....
No doubt. All that, & a bag a chips!Yea, probably cause its long wheel base,soft suspension and cvt
