Not a lot of snow this winter, but a little dusting is all you need to have drifting fun....

Could not resist (and have not had the car out for a month), so took a tour of the neighborhood today, after about 6 inches of wet snow. With the ground still frozen from lower temps last week, traction ranged from fair to none. Conti Winter Contact tires did OK, and the car felt better with the PSM disabled, especially climbing uphill.

And maybe just a smidge of curb rash on that wheel?

Mine was fine today, with winter tires. 3-4" of wet snow.

God bless,

Mine is RWD. Did fine on snow tires today on slick fresh 3-4 inches of snow. You just have to drive sensibly or the torque will spin your wheels. No quick launches off the line in the snow.

Nice dusting here in Chicagoland. Ton of fun leaving all sorts of SUVs, pickups, Tesla's, etc in my snow rooster tail.
