just wondering how can it be "production AWD class" since there was never such thing as the 99 Impreza with turbo engine sold in North America?
can You clarify please?

As the CARS Production 4wd rules were written for 2013, driveline swaps were allowed within models - allowing a wrx driveline in an RS shell.
Revisions to that rule, restricting driveline swaps to within a 'generation' would return this car to open, as would have the JDM 5 speed in any case.

Sorry to see you sell it Mike.

The rules as written for 2013, if the STi driveline were a north american driveline and left stock, then yes. However, there is a rule change coming that will restrict drivelines to within the same generation for production.

well that's the thing
there were NO TURBO IMPREZAS till 2002 in North America!
so till then there were only n/a imprezas.
and that was my question all about - how can it be in "production" class

I think it is as the rules are now, it's production, but when the generational rule comes in it will be back in open.
Is that right Keith?

Correct mike, if it didn't have a JDM 5 speed. (Unless it is identical to a n/a 5 speed)
