atention gts-t owners

just bought 3 months ago a gts-t r33 , great car , super fast, named all 99% great but wen it comes to drive it in the snow its a ****ing nigtmare , light snow and wet not so bad but 1 day after big snow wen the roads get slipery its just horrible, you get small engine cars passing and you drive like a twat not to crash its just not a good car for that ,( summer car def.). obv..... something happend , ok i had a small crash earlier in the autobanh driving 40 km h and the car just turn around like i was making a donut , i try to get the control back but the stearing was light as butter and all i could do was droping gears down and small brake bites , but come on 40kmh thats how slow i was driving wen i lost control , somebody forgot to clean the snow on the way to salsgitter so it was terrible , now i have a damage front bumper and a scared wife lol .. no prob. still lov my car : ) ..

powerful rwd cars with wide wheels arent going to do that well on snow,obviously the small cars with 2inch wide wheels are going to be better!

It's all about getting used to the car and how it behaves in different weather conditions. And yes, it's not the best thing to drive on fully iced and snowed roads. But that ain't rocket science...

RWD too.

And although I've driven it in snow already without winter tyres and crashing it your're right it needs be left in the garage and taken out in spring/summer only that's why I posted the above.

It's not the cars fault, it's the driver. Remember that.

well thanks guys , its just hard to park the beast and wait months to drive it , on the other side its a good brake for upgrades witch dont require road testing . i use to own a evo maybe thats why this is a hole new world for me , some skyline owners dont like evos or scoobies but true is them cars are all year driveable and safe , so for guys like me witch didnt had enought dolars to get a gtr the gts-t (on my opinion) its absolutly great car but better to make a season insurance and stop the car on the winter , no point driving it ... but wen you get to the dry its a great car to rule the streets and murder some boy racers..

remember its not the car is the driver lol.. imao (well said)

Were you using summer tires or proper wintertires? Here in finland quite many Skyline owner use their Skyline in winter and only problem which i've heard is where get engineheater so you don't have to start fully cold engine in -20 or -30 degeers celsius. I have a Gts-t but haven't driven it on snow because it was cheaper to buy 350 euro car with studded tires instead of paying 900euros for new studded tires for Skyline.

wow...you're in winter tires and find it undriveable???weird!! suspension too hard maybe? or maybe you went on black ice...
i hope you don't drive it like you were driving the evo....you just can't compare 2wd and awd
it seems you should have bough a GTR...all year fun!!

that video example its not called driving mate, thats drifting on a remote place , i invite you to come around and drive my car in the snow, the stearing is too light and you get no traction at all mate, nothing rong with the car, the driver its not bad , start in 2 gear slow with the feet on the power and still dont go or it will on sideways all the time , plus that r32 looks like a gtr 1
