Re: 2008 Shelby GT
Well, that depends on your tolerance level for driving on ice.
I am a pretty good slippery road driver.
Although lots o' horsepower will put that rear-end where the front end should be real quick.
If it's planned it's ok. If not, ooooops!
But I'll probably get my tires siped or get studs for next winter, just to be safe.
As a rule of thumb, in northern Alaska we have 6 months of winter, 2 months each of everything else. So, about 6 months. More realistically 5 months-due to irregular snowfall. In southern Alaska winter is about 1-1 1/2 months shorter. Therefore, the driving season is a bit longer. oddly enough, in the north it's much warmer and dryer in the summer so driving conditions are great. In the south (near the ocean) much wetter and cooler.
