I imagine this is a very stupid idea, I never hear about it so either it's revolutionary or retarded...and I'm thinking the second one.
As you all know, I live in PA. Winter not only sucks here, Winter in the mountains is what blows. There is no way for me to get home without going up a hill. Last year I got stuck only once and almost surrendered to an icey hill...on summer tires!
I was talking to my parents and I have free use of my money and my graduation money
. Instead of buying something I don't want like a FWD car (Even if it was a Pontiac <3) or SUV/Truck, I am going and buying another RWD car.
Here is where the mentally challenged idea comes into play: Aftermarket suspension parts. They are made to improve handling on dry surfaces, would it effect the car in the snow at all? Extra grip from the parts + plus truck tires on heavy snow rims with weights in the truck (or hooker), am I looking at a RWD Winter beast?
I call it a Snowmaro, but maybe my idea is a dud. I got away with summer tires and 3.42s but I was thinking of something fun to commute with so my Z28 doesn't get a winter treatment. It would be a 5 speed this time so I can always be in the right gear when I have to get away from snow lions and stuff of that nature.
What do you think? Am I a third gen retard or RWD genius?!
