I,ve driven P3D, 3, and SD and all seem very balanced...were you didn't feel one dominate drive front or rear. new 3D feels very diff like its just front wheel drive with maybe 80/20 front/rear power. has anyone else had this experience? wondering if its this car or all 3Ds.

It should be trying to use the rear motor in most cases, since it's more efficient. The front motor uses almost no energy when it's powered down.
