front wheel drive or rear wheel drive

hi all,
can someone suggest whether to use a front wheel drive or a rear wheel drive for a remote control ic engine racing buggy. Four wheel transmission in not possible. Its has to run on off road track which obstacles. ic engine is of 3.2 cc.

All things being equal, front wheel drive generally works better than rear wheel drive in off road applications. With FWD, you'll need to be careful on thr transmission of power so as not to overdrive the wheels for steering.
In rear will drive will be easy to design than front wheel drive and it will provide you better handling..... But front wheel drive will reduce the weight of vehicle as you dont need the transmission shaft in it

but what if engine is mounted on the rear part without transmission shaft. its already complicated with self designed steering system in the front. will it work for off road. and i want to ask one thing more- what can be the approximate torque of the 3.2 cc (rpm- 2800 to 15000) glow plug engine. i could not search about it properly on net.

Try the drive mechanism as in tata- nano car which occupies less space in vehicle.keep ic engine in middle of vehicle as in nano
