    I'll put some up. Its a cool car. I think the engine is pretty over engineered and could probably handle the mods. I'm not so sure about the drive train. You asked about the suspension- the sport mode is plenty firm. The advanced mode is brutal- I've got a triumph spitfire SCAA racer with a track suspension and its about the same as the V70R in advanced mode. There are some quirks though. If you lift in a tight corner the back end kicks as power shifts to the rear- it pushes the car round but its a bit of a shock the first time it happens....But its a safe car with neutral handling- with a stability/traction control system I think I'd have to really chuck it around to break loose.

    Take two WRXs with similar mods, a wagon and a sedan, and put them against a GT or a Z28. I bet the wagon owner would feel much more satifaction after the victory.

    6.1L Hemi with 420HP+ should be on the road shortly. Nice cars,
    I like how they take much of whats good in MB/AMG parts bin with a lot less of the electronic **** and expensive engine components (albeit with the bloated weight though), hybrid vigor I'd guess you'd say.

    I think there's an SRT-8 in the works:

    I'm not sure if this motor is going to end up in the Magnum but it it does thats going to be a fast wagon...

    I've also read a bit about a possible Caddy CTS wagon- if its comes in a CTS-V version thats going to be pretty quick too...

    The hemi is a ****ty design for a combustion chamber.

    These peoples' snobbery only indicates their ignorance.

    Drag racing Subarus is pointless, though, anyway. They are clearly not designed for it. I never take my street bikes in the dirt, either. Nor would I take a mercedes diesel to auto-x.
