žnow = teh žuck

I hate it! The SVT has been garaged since Thursday waiting on snow tires to get mounted. What is cool is that I've been having a blast in the truck. Last night it was coming down hard so I went out to play. Nothing like rear wheel drive in the snow for throwing down on the brodies and even some seriously styled drifting. The tires that came on the truck stock, BFG Long Trails, suck very bad so I'm looking forward to wearing them out soon and throwing on the A/T's.

I had the same thing, Nissan wise, before the Focus only mine was the Hard Body Style. I had to get rid of her because she was a stick. It was a blast in Ft Drum, NY

I miss driving in the snow. When I lived in Colorado, the first thing I would do after a snow was go out and drive around and laugh at people getting stuck. (I know that was bad)

We were supposed to get a "dusting" over Friday afternoon...

We ended up with at least 4" by the time I woke up Sat. morning! Yeah New England!

As I was trying to back the Focus out of the driveway an interesting phenomenon occured though with my directional tires. The wheels spun and these weird snow pellets came shooting out the front like a machine gun! They were about an inch long and almost cylinder shaped, there had to be thousands from the front wheels!

That was amusing and the car got out... now I guess it's time to switch to my winter set.

You can't whip a proper brodie with the front wheel drive. Besides, the truck has all that longness and it twirls
