Barely makes a diff, but if you're not using them anyways, might as well.

next week or two weeks?

I thought the date was Saturday the 26th. We have some kids solo ensemble stuff that day but it looks like we are a 70% chance of making it. I wil confirm next week sometime in the thread.

Snow and WI makes me

Well, if you use them, leave them on. If not, take them off. The roofrack for my impreza goes on in under 10 minutes, so I just put it on when I need it. This summer it may be on quite a lot seeing that I'm probably going to be mountain biking far enough away that I'll have to drive.

2 weeks - my mistake.

you mean the lack of snow makes you mad?

as for the racks, i rarely use them, and as quentinberg007 said, they go on the car real quick if you do need them.

I left the cross bars on because I thought they "might" provide the wagon a stiffening effect.

they dont. and if they do, its very minimal.

i agree with those who say "if you dont use it, shouldnt be on the car".

plus, if ever needed, it can be put back on in less time than it takes to drop a deuce.
