The Type R is a great car.....but it is FWD, not RWD or AWD like a lot of the rally competitors you see in the SCCA and WRC.

The SCCA has a FWD class, so hopefully it's kicking @ss there.Speed Channel shows the races.

I'd much rather see an R on a paved course, but it's good to see the R taking it to the dirt I guess, diversifying it mud style.

I take it you either went to the Maine State Forrest Rally or found that pic on the ME Forrest Rally web page. one of my friends from home goes every year. A true rally dork. His WRX, however, doesn't leaving the parking lot...

I use to watch Speed Vision often. It was mighty cool to watch the Type Rs spank the BMW M3s (E36). The M3s would take the Type Rs up hills and in straight lines (big surprise) but as soon as they got in the tight stuff, the Type Rs would lay the smack down.

Also, according to my friend who was at the ME Forrest Rally, Type Rs are the fastest in their class (what class that is, I don't know).
