Wagon vs. sedan performance

I have read some of the numbers from magazines but I wouldn't rely on those. What are your impressions of the performance of the wagon vs. the sedan?

The Sedan suspension is better (wider and bigger stock Anti-sway bar)

As far as acceleration, I don't see any difference at the track; my stock wagon can run with the stock sedans there.

the wagon weighs 25 more pounds... so maybe your 1/4 mile might be .025 longer since 100lbs = roughly .1s in the 1/4 mile.

Sway bars are a great mod anyway. One of my catalogs has some that are supposed to promote under/neutral/over steer depending on which model you get.

Just like my profile says...

Tickets to a movie, $20. Ten gallons of 92 octane, $23. Spanking a hotshot in his new Porsche with your station-wagon? Priceless.

I tell ya guys, when I grow old, I'm buying a Forester (if they even exist by the time i grow old ) and I'm modding the crap out of it and making it a 100% true sleeper. Then make all those teens eat the fact they just got beat by a Forester... muhaha
