caught in a little snow tonight

Was at a friends house hanging out with their family, due to a recent death. people start to leave and we notice its sleating pretty hard. i say my goodbyes and get in my car already knowing its a bad idea, but i go anyway. Slippery isnt even the word, but it is manageable, til i start up a hill and slower and slower. Had to turn off tc because there was no power getting anywhere, so that did the job, just a scary ride home, lots of sliding.I get home clear out my driveway real quick and walking back to my car, there is condensation on the inside of both light housings. Any one else have this, and my best bet is to just take it for the dealer, it has to go in for a service anyway. That is all, just a little rant

You won't get better at it until you do it.

RWD + Winter doesn't bother me anymore.

I've said out before and I'll say it again... I prefer RWD in the snow.

You must be running the P-Zeros. I ran Scorpion Ice and Snows all winter and they are great. Then I bought some new chrome summer wheels last week and could not wait so I put them on with my summer tires. Last night we got a dusting of snow. Wow are those tires BAD in snow! Almost turned around and kicked the wife out of her car, (ya right). Have you ever walked on ice with dress shoes? Same thing.

I dont mind driving in the snow and ice, just prefer not to with this car. The P-Zeros cant hook up at all, and the traction control actually does more bad then good. Once it starts cutting power just has to be turned off. Hopefully before next winter ill have some snow tires

The P-Zeros don't like cold either. This morning it was 20 deg and on dry pavment at 65 MPH, I nailed it and the back end was ALL over the place. Wow.

I actually prefer to drive the Camaro in snowy conditions over the Camry with all seasons.

I do have the Pirelli Scorpion Ice and snow tires, and I haven't switched to the P-zeros yet.

X2!

I hate FWD in the snow, much much prefer RWD.

However, since I've now experienced AWD in the snow/ice - I'll take that over either one!
