the front engine is much more dangerous to the driver.

Exactly. #13 was the last front engine car Big Daddy Don drove. The trans blew and he lost half of his foot from it.
When I was a kid, I drove a 1967 Chevelle SS with 396/375 4 bolt main, 30 over bore (producing well over 400 hp) and a 40 pound steel flywheel with no scattershield. If the clutch ever let go I'd have been hamburger. Ah to be young and foolish again.
