Hmmm, can you say WRC car? Nonetheless, a sweet ride.

Notice the absence of required sponsor stickers for the ProRally ID package. Also note the improper placement of crew nationality flags. I could probably find more, but I'm saving them for the day I get protested or hassled at tech.

Whoa!!

From the side view it looks like that thing is doing a wheelie!!!

Wait....it says Lovell on the side. That photo must have been taken while he was driving through a service area or something.

A sad day when a United States ProRally Series car has British plates.

The car has a different rear wing than the WRC cars. However, the front end looks the same.

Wonder what kind of transmission and differentials it has? Hmmmmmmmm........

Anybody know when Prodrive's and Mitsubishi's contract expires to run the SCCA seris?

Dunno... If you ask me, the golf over in the background is looking pretty envious...

Yes, I was referring to that picture...The only reason I made the previous comment is that I don't know what the beneifts of those pedal boxes are and to me always seemed like another way to spend some money....so why are they better?

in these imprezas the driver and co-driver are moved back to be closer to the center of gravity on the car so the steereing wheel is extended and it necessetates the use of the custom floor
mounted pedal box. it was either that or stretch the drivers arms and legs!
at least that is what a prodrive tech told me.

I was just teasing you, I had not seen that photo yet, so I was accusing you of being able to see through the sheet metal:+


The reason for the pedal assembly is also to lower the center of gravity. It must make a difference since most WRC cars are doing it that way too! Why it is neccessary outside the WRC level of competition is another story
