Just wondering...

Is there a reasonable way to install traction control on a 2004 v6 mustang that didn't come standard with it.

You don't need it when it snows??? How do you drive when it snows? I'm really worried especially with going to a higher gear

The biggest thing that helps traction in the snow is the driver, it really is... Learn to control the car and you won't ever need traction control.

Lol i just dont floor it...i like being able to control throttle rain, snow, etc. I found that having TC kick in usually made me spin out more or have control issues. Just add 200-300 lbs of sand like i do in the trunk if it actually snows bad and you're golden

The weight in the back will really help with traction on hills.

Dang right, I was spinning at 60mph earlier not even on WOT with the roads just a little wet... They suck for rain, but dry they're amazing
