thats just like saying take a bmw and remove the right rear axle

theres a differential in the middle that sends the power where it decides, and it will get screwed up if theres nothing up front if it decides to send the power there....

Well, by just removing the front axles, there would be nothing to hold the wheel hub and bearings in, your front wheels would essentially pop right off...

(Not to mention the power distribution issues you'd run into (see link above)
