Can honestly say, I could never think of drifting a wagon. I think there was a E30 with pipes coming outta the hood? That wagon is just ridiculous lol.

For some reason the length of the wagon makes the drift look more controlled. There must be some reasoning behind it.

longer wheelbase = longer car = longer arc in the rear = better control because the distance and time to switch axis is greater.

also, bigger cars drifting tend to look more stable and less jittery.
the downside is that these cars are heavier, and less nimble. which isnt all that bad either... more weight to throw around means more weight to hold you down, and being more nimble also means you could lose control faster.

thats why 4drs are getting so popular in the D1GP and FD right now.
