Generally, under normal driving, most mainstream AWD puts more power to the front wheels, while sportier models will usually emphasize the rear wheels. If a system is described as 60/40, for example, it means 60 per cent of power goes to the front wheels, and 40 per cent to the rear.
Drifting a car can be tricky and doing so in an all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle is more difficult than other layouts. To be able to drift an AWD car you first need the right machine. It needs enough horsepower to be able to break traction. The Audi R8 and Subaru WRX are two choices that can be made to work.
The result is more stable and reliable acceleration of the vehicle into the gap in the oncoming traffic, because in this situation the grip of the best AWD car is twice that of the best RWD car. Meaning that the best AWD car will lose sideways grip at much higher cornering forces than the best RWD car.
It can cause your tires to spin faster if you start to hydroplane. Then you could fishtail and lose steering control when tires regain traction. Don’t drive through water flowing across the road even if you’re going slow. They’ve done some of the work of scattering water for you.
As a rule of thumb, handbrake turns work best on front-wheel drive cars. Given that locking the rear wheels on a rear-wheel drive car will kill all drive it tends to not give the desired effect, and could also damage your driveline. If you are never in motion when applying it, you are not “damaging” the car.

As it turns out, drifting is just as fast if not slower than regular turning. Add this to the fact that you have to get that flicked car tail under control after a drift and you have a similarly fast if not slower technique.
