Default F & R wheel rotation speed is different

What is the difference between the front and rear wheel rotation speeds?

Usually we put slower gearing in the rear to help turn the car. When the front wheels spin a little faster it helps with steering. An added bonus is not flipping over backwards as much on breakovers.

The front wheels need to turn faster than the rear wheels because the front wheels travel farther when cornering, and it also helps the front wheels claw their way up the side of obstacles.
