so if ya'll had the same weather up there as we got down here, you wouldnt be flying down the road in 6 inches of snow in 2wd at 55mph.

I completly agree with you. No one can say anything about this guys driving until you were either there driving in the identical situation, or see a video of it. You dont know all the variables quite simply.

I live in the PNW and we dont get snow to often maybe a good one every other year or so, and Ill be the first to admit not everyone is a good snow driver (many people here dont know how to drive in it and the valley pretty much shuts down from snow). But just becuase you have driven in snow does not mean your snow driving expirence is equal.

There's a lot of juvenile bragging going on here. If any of you wreck in the snow, I'll try to remember to quote your claims of how fast you like to drive in the snow and ice. It will be fun to laugh at your expense.

well, like i stated earlier, i dont need driving lessons. you learn how to drive in winter weather real quick when you get ice all the time instead of snow. it rained for hours before it snowed creating slush and a lot of ice under the snow which made real lousy driving conditions. that coupled with equipment failure just screwed me royally. and remember i live in virginia. i really dont care what happens up north and never will. its a good place to be from. so if ya'll had the same weather up there as we got down here, you wouldnt be flying down the raod in 6 inches of snow in 2wd at 55mph.
Agreed, but I do find it humorous that if there is a big Ice storm in the south, you get to watch the news and they show people with locked up brakes sliding off the road.:icon_rofl:

I agree.
Keep in mind those of us that have spent every winter our entire lives driving in snow ALWAYS second guess people who say the roads are "terrible" because more often than not they have no clue WTF they are doing. I KNOW all to well how shitty ice can be and did some back pedaling when he said it was pure, or mostly ice.
