Anyone drive it in the winter? Can it be done-safely?

Thanks!

Get some good winter tires and don't floor it!

It's risky. If you were the only car on the road, I'd say, yes it can be done safely. Buy you're not and it's the idiots that make it unsafe.

I drive my 2012 GT IN THE SNOW!! I have the 93 race tune from SCT.. And I have found that if you stay under 3000 RPM IT Does GREAT!! But anything above 3000 rpm that's seems to be where the power kicks in and wants to start wheel spin when giving it gas! So I just don't go over 2500 -2800 RPM's when I shift gears and have no problems in the snow! But above 3000 RPM's , the back end is all over the place until you get in 5th gear, than your ok to go the speed you feel comfortable with!!!!!
