for normal car, front & rear tire friction are very close, when you brake hardly, rear wheel will lock, it lose friction, and the front friction are still huge, so the car will lose control.
on DW, the front tire is very small, even the rear wheel lock, the friction are still higher then front wheel, so it will keep stable
Did anybody besides me notice in the CFD video the huge separation bubble behind that huge flat aft facing rear body? Huh? "Low drag?" This thing looks like it has a lot of surface area for what it contains. Low drag?
What BS in
