Default Is it possible for a wrx to be FWD?

Because under heavy boost my car acts like it is! I mean when the boost hits sometimes the front tires spin i can feel it, car feels all funked up. Broken center Diff. or something else? Transmission goes through all gears fine although at 70,000k it wouldnt suprise me if its broke.

Your front tires will spin slightly under high load in most any AWD car that uses a viscous coupling center differential (such as the WRX)... it takes time for the differential to lock up, and it will behave as an open differential until it does, resulting in wheelspin on the wheels with the least grip (ie, the front ones, under acceleration, due to rearward weight transfer) until differential lockup can occur.
