Most commonly, this problem is due to a out-of-round tire or a tire that needs a rebalance.

When weight transfer occurs in a front-wheel drive car during acceleration does this mean that the rear of the car becomes heavier than the front?

During forward acceleration on any vehicle (front wheel drive or otherwise), more of the vehicles weight is transferred to the rear of the car, making the rear of the car heavier. This is undesirable in a front wheel drive car because there is less weight over the drive wheels to produce traction (causing the front wheels to spin)

The key to better acceleration or higher top speed is ratios, but if you change to a smaller sprocket at both ends the changes will cancel each other out and leave you pretty much where you started. If you want faster acceleration go for a smaller front or for a bigger rear.

Why the engine of the sport car is on back side?

Sports car's have powerful engines . So if the engine it attached to the front wheels then front wheel's would have to the acceleration as well as the steering which would spoil the handling especially during turning fast (the reason front engine car screech during turing fast). Now putting the engine at the back and connecting it to the rear wheels , the rear wheels would do the job of accelerating , and the front wheels would be free to do the steering part .
