For low power you can have FWD or 2WD, but for high power...FWD is just not safe.

edit: for those who are going to go FWD, regardless of warnings, use TWO torque-arms. One of the pics floating around the archives is a high-powered FWD that started acting funny, pulled over and both drop-outs had snapped. If he had not using two torque arms, it would have likely been a face-plant into traffic. And...one torque-arm for FWD? injuries to my body are not worth the risk...just to save the extra $20.
