Re: We got a Snowstorm Dominick, and it's coming your way reaaaaal fast!

yeah, its pretty much ideal.  no curbs, no obstacles, its close to 100 feet wide by 400 feet long, if not larger.  our shop guys in their hondas just told me a few min ago that they were jealous of me and the other sales guy for being able to actually drift around last night...i guess we had a little audience watching from a loading dock.   biggrin  kind of hard to miss a couple subie engines revving away.

Re: We got a Snowstorm Dominick, and it's coming your way reaaaaal fast!

Almost had a hypothetical accident going no more than 5 mph on top of the school lot wanting to see how they brake, and right away ABS kicked in, the pedal feel got hard, but I wasn't stopping at all. I think it's time for snow tires next year.

It's very slick out there. Just the right temp. where it's sort of melting on the pavement...

Be careful out there!

Yeah, it's the braking and turning that we have to be worried about. But with the 4eat I just leave it in 3rd when it snows, for consistent power delivery when I need it. So I take a curb slower, but still slide, I just give floor it then back off quickly (like 3 seconds) and I am OK again. I also live and work in an area that isn't nearly as populated as Cook County.

Drink before you drive or if you drink and drive, you'll spill your drink.

It's fuckin' nasty outside. The snow was drifting up in the street when I was just driving home. Very nasty.
