at least, that's what would make sense to me
AWD = slow in fast out, aka dive bomb the brakes well before the apex, throw the car at the apex, and stomp on the gas. you have to upset the chassis to get the car to turn, which means usually pushing it right to and slightly over the edge.

RWD = turn in earlier, braking TO the apex, then roll on the gas exiting. it's upsets the chassis MUCH less, and keeps things much smoother. in racing, smooth = fast.
