This theory is flawed however, as with FWD you'd trying to both steer and power the car with the same wheels. You'll reach their traction limits much sooner than if the power is spread out through 4 wheels. Also most FWD cars don't have an LSD, so it's one wheel drive...
I'm not sure what he was trying to say. This part confused me too because he says that "AWD owns" yet he would rather have FWD or better yet quattro, which is AWD:
