    Although RWD can be more spectacular, as long as people can relate to the cars they see on the stages I think rallying will continue to be popular and fun.

    Exactly, we need more rwd turbo 4cyl coupes on the market. Hopefully new rules and homologation can snag at least one such vehicle for the US market.

    I'm kinda hoping this ends up in a compromise. The AWD systems of today's top WRC cars are damn near as complex as the inner workings of the female human brain at this point. If they made the teams stick to what the road going cars are rocking (mmmmm, homologation), I think we'd get better road cars and more interest in the WRC. Am I wrong?

    Otherwise, leave it the F alone. The sport is not in that great of a shape as it is.

    Edit: Remember when racing pushed the development of new technology in the auto industry? Now we have to take another step backwards??

    2wd should be allowed but have its own class. maybe replace the production class with 2wd class, because very little attention is given to the production class when you have the same cars with more horsepower in the main event.

    I dont believe Subaru will lose their rally heritage or legacy. Subaru has earned its spot as arguably the best manufacturer for rally cars. that is something that can never be taken away, even if rally itself disappears. subaru will just have to adjust or move on. i think its a poor move by the WRC to ban AWD vehicles but that is their decision and we will all have to live with it.
