Re: mustang in the snow
I drive my car year round and have a 45 mile one way commute. I've driven through big rains, snow, blizzards. What I do differently to my car is ...................
No extra weight in the trunk, Pirelli P-zero Nero on the car. Accelerate smoother, increase the stopping distance, and keep an eye out for what is happening around me.
When I got my license the only front wheel drive car was the Olds Toronado. We didn't sit at home all winter or break out the horse and sleigh.
I hear people on the forums say it can't be done or is difficult. BS. I drove for client meetings just this week, 2 hours one way, in freezing rain first, then snow, then blizzard. No problems. (how in the world did I do it in a rear wheel drive Mustang!)
I hear people say that they put all kinds of bricks in their trunks and other weight. If you do have a problem, and the car stops suddenly against a snow bank, what do you think all that weight in the trunk is going to do? It doesn't just sit there, it continues forward and if you have a coupe the only thing separating you from that weight that is now moving forward is the seat back. So now you have a brick aimed at your head, better wear a racing helmet and hope it is enough.
