Theres a very treacherous part of 95 between boca and delray where that accident happened that i posted about between the acura and the toyota camry where it's freshly paved and it gets just slick has a button, I noticed that my car likes to just stick to the road even if there is water pooling on the road...I dont know if it's 50% tires and 50% ford engineering or something LOL. I just love how my car handles the wet stuff yes i do slow down thought because i do notice however sometime that my front end starts to walk.

Ya, maybe it is Ford's engineering. But it also plays heavily on the tires that you are running. That can change the game in a hurry.
