As soon as snow falls I'm going to miss the E30 cuz I was waiting to slide that around a bit in areas where if I got out of control nobody would be hurt and there was very little chance the car would get hurt. You won't see me sliding on public road ways unless its low traffic areas at like midnight or later

no e-brake required:

although most AWD rally guys still use ebrake at sometime to help make quick transitions back and forth. through S-curves hence why they have hydro e-brakes. it's not required but helps for going fast.
which reminds me my e-brake doesn't work currently so maybe I should just toss in a hydro ebrake for lolz.

I was an absolute tank the SVT with the blizzaks. Snow was falling and highway was coverd in it and I had cruise set at 80 and the car felt 100% stable the whole time.

The Jetta however on bald all seasons was clearly a different story lol

edit:

Remember that 90% of the people who see in ditches on the side of the highway are trucks and suv's driven by people who think they have monster trucks and can drive anywhere because 4 wheel drive brah
