::smack:: IT'S A CADDY!!!!
::SMACK:: In 94 Caddy's had FWD.
SMACKX1000 Caddy's are RWD DAMNIT!!!!
SMACK BACK. Google + Caddilac + 94 + FWD :)
I could care less about 94 Caddys. EVERYONE knows Caddys are RWD period
Yes, but his question was about a 94 Caddy, period.
oops, missed that part... He didn't specify a model though.

Some northstar equipped ones are FWD. Trust me.
I. DON'T. CARE.
Cadillacs are RWD and that's all there is to it. They do have some FWD models but people certainly don't equate FWD with Caddys. When people think Caddy they think "RWD, V8, boat, torque, etc.". FWD is to be found nowhere among them.
So your position is that except for the FWD models all Caddies are RWD?

Yeah, back in 1950. It's the new millennium, they've made FWD caddy's for decades now. Regardless, none of us are helping with his problem, so rather than argue I will wait for real help to arrive.

Well, people are stupid. Some are FWD. Get over it. PHR built a RWD hot rod using a FWD caddy engine and trans for a rear engine rot rod.

Just because you don't want to believe it doesn't make it false.

I've already helped. Big V8 with lots of torque + 2WD = ease into the gas pedal for smooth movement off the line. 'nuff said.

Thanks for contributing to the topic at hand.
 

Well after reading your supposed authority on the subject, someone had to deflate that airbag head of yours, by the way, that was a fantastic reply to my statement.

What about "common perception" do you not understand? I was explaining the common man's perception of a Caddy. Never once have I stated "All caddys are RWD". In fact, I seem to recall admitting that there were, in fact, FWD Caddys.... Just what in the heck are you talking about anyway? Can we please get back to the topic? If you "own a shop" and are so knowledgeable about Caddys, why not help Twista with his question rather than straying off-topic?

Oh Noes!!!
Oh Noes Again!!
OMG! My Life is overz!
St@b me in the face!
You seem to have overlooked the statement "They do have some FWD models but people certainly don't equat FWD with Caddys." Can we drop this, please? I never said there were no FWD Caddys so what the heck is the argument about??

Anyway, whether it's FWD or RWD it's still 2WD and has a lot of torque so throttle modulation is key when moving off the line.
 

Your asinine statements have derailed this thread, not mine.


Do you speak for the common man ?

Can you read the common man's mind as to what they think when Cadallac is spoken out loud ?

Why don't you care to help? You've done nothing but jack off in someone else's thread about something you have no knowledge of whatsoever.

Great. YAEGUOFT: Yet Another Everyone Gang Up On Flyermax Thread
I'm done responding to off-topic posts in this thread. I've said my two cents. If Twista has anymore questions I'll be more than happy to help but I won't be replying to anymore of these "you're an idiot and you don't know what you're talking about BLAH BLAH BLAH DIE DIE DIE!" posts

There are a whole bunch of FWD Cadillacs. Eldorado and Seville both come immediately to mind. The Deville was also FWD in the early 1990's.

An intelligent person would start realise that if everyone keeps ganging up on him, he must be doing something to deserve it. Maybe you just need a few more hints than the average person.
