Question going to buy a 98 STI. Need more info!

I'm gonna buy a STI version 5 (the basic version) and i need more information about the car. i could not find any information on the web about its specs and options. does it comes with LSD ? if yes, does it comes with real LSD as well? does it have ACD or any kind of similar option? any kind of traction control settings?

Thanks in advance!

thanks friend.

I need to know few more things about the car. I wish to take it to track race some day. So I need to know about how good its transmission and traction controls are?

I need to know more about the rear LSD. isnt it important to have front LSD as well for track races?

And how good would this car be performing in different kind of tracks such as gravel and tarmac?
