LOL, that is something I've been annoyed at in cars for years.

Non-turning rear wheels? 85-91 Preludes had it as an option. I've always wondered how that would work for autocross... My friend had an '88 Si 4WS and it could U turn from the left turn lane into the left lane.

Question

ahem, doesn't the RS (I know it's advertized in the MY00) have passive rear steering?

They market it as that. What it truly is a bar that links the rear wheels so that when the outside one goes to toe out, the inside toes in. It would be better if the outside tire didn't toe out at all, but that's the price you pay for a long travel strut suspension. (for rallying)

Post Is the rear wheel well smaller?

I am asking this because I noticed that the rear seems to havea smaller gap b/t the fender and tire than the front gap.

Yes it is. It is a flatter arch because the wheels don't turn back there.

well that means you've either got aftermarket suspension or a tired set of front stock springs.
