thank god for the snow button!

well, after a bit of snow it was a nightmare trying to get the car out of the car park. I sat and watched many people trying to get out but in the end giving up. then i went out, turned the AT onto the snow setting and slowely but surely got myself out! finally, a skyline that can deal with our fickle weather.

hope you guys have made the most of this clever little button

Lol, good fun today driving in almost blizzard like conditions.

Sometimes having winter tires and a tsc helps get to boost past all the euroboxes that get stuck in the snow...
With the odd bit of sideways action for a good measure of fun

I took my wife's friend home last night(wife knew about it as she sent me)I used my snow button which does not get used often.Only fault was when i braked and slowed
to drop my wife's friend off a few streets away i just slid a few feet.

Eventually my wife's friend said i will walk from here.

Also i am meant to be at a Hospital appointment later today,but the 30 miles each way and driving back tonight and icy snowy roads warnings on the net as led me to cancel it,someone rear ending me a few years ago almost to the day has def put me off also.

Had a R33 GTS in St Lucia (Caribbean) which came with a snow button, really usefull in the tropics ;-) Would be interesting to see wether it would make any diffrence to my current ride R34 GTT which is just scary in the current weather.

:P It's still a quiet stealth mobile.
LOL, tbh, nothing has been changed, mabye new floormats lol, i just finally got round to heading to the dyno :P

Previously i didn't want to quote a figure incase any of the upgrades that had been done had been for nothing ;) not bad though since when i did buy the car it was stock (dyno'd at 274bhp).
