tried it as the snow fell as I was at work and the daily was being an arse. Erm back end sliding out alot of the way but kept momentum untill I had to slow for a car and on the most tiny uphill slope that was it, stopped and no traction. A good fellow in a land rover gave me a tow.

did it once, never again, felt like driving a hovercraft without the controls. I ended up getting a prayer mat out instead of using the steering wheel.

I drove back from Rising Sun on Monday.......When the whole area got dumped on unexpectidily. It was intresting on the way home after driving up a hill for half a mile sideways in 3rd gear

By driving in these conditions you learn how to drive the car better and safer, plus have a better chance of keeping it on the road!!!

well all of u guys are actually lucky you didnt crash the "preciouse" like i did , am well pist off , now i need a front bumper , had a evo before , got my r33 since 4 months now , i will never drive it in the snow again , i actually think its the worst car to drive in the snow anless all the roads are empty and available to drift around , but **** it i still love my preciouse she will be my summer pornostar , as for the bad winter that rust all the cars and keep u bored i will just get a wrx or a celica gt4 to enjoy
4wd safety . but soon as the snow go away the preciouse will return and the 4wd snow toy will park lol
