EL-Wagon Vs Sedan

Hey..just wondering what *should* win- my mates EL sedan with 3.08 diff and 140000k's or my mums EL wagon with 3.23 dif and just on 80000k's. I know our car has been looked after...and i know the other one gets push really hard sometimes. Do you think that the age and worse diff ratio will counter the extra weight of the wagon? The sedan is a column shift too (both autos)
And tips for how to start off (on like a 0-100 or 0-400m) would also be good.
Thanks,
DM

Sedan ay...what if the sedan is full o petrol and the wagon is nigh on empty?...the wagon also has nice light mags and less crap lying round.
Stalling ..i'm assuming thats brake+accel...don't that break ur gearbox etc?
neway..i'll see when i get P's...few weeks now...grrr
thanks

Re: EL-Wagon Vs Sedan

ok if u stall it for like 30 min yea it will cause damage, doing it for a few seconds wont do ne thing, if u do it for long periods what it will do is overheat the torque converter, wagon is heaver than sedan, and if you want an even drag then why handycap the situation??

Re: EL-Wagon Vs Sedan

stalling up the converter like that is just like dropping the clutch. Just don't do it ever set of lights and youll be cool :)
