The rotating behavior of the subies could possibly
have to do with a shorter wheelbase of the impreza
line vs. our rather stretch limo wheelbase.  I hear a
bigger RSB may end those woes.  :-)
Also, look at engine placement.  The I-5 sits in front
of the front diff = UNDERSTEER.  Boxer 4 sits low and
back = better balance.
When a buddy of mine with a 2.5RS was doing launches
in 6 inches of powder about 3 winters ago, I recall
fronts spinning, then rears spinning and it went back
and forth, which leads me to believe that it is, in
fact, center Torsen based.
