You are incorrect. Some of the front weight on a car is transferred to the rear on an incline. A FWD drive car will not have all the weight in the front axle when traveling up a hill whereas a rear engined car will not only have all of the rear weight, it also will carry a part of the front car weight. Have you wondered why front brakes are responsible for 80 to 85% of the car's braking ability? Same principle.
