I know. I lived there more winters than sommars. And among most "normal" people that I've called friends all over America, same thing


Brrriiiiing (phone ringing at 10.at night)
Hullo?
Oi Fred, snowing hard right now....
Oh. OK. right over...We need to get sideways
OK see ya

No discussion, no pause to think "oh let me see, I wonder if its still fun getting sideways, hmmmmmmm" ..get fawkin sideways when it snow is what you do.

That's why I'm puzzled all these scenery shots with Volvos sitting..

^^ Ding, ding. Now you understand the "Drifting" phenomenon. No snow, just add lots of horse power and you get pretty much the same thing, only louder.

If you are fast on asphalt, you are still drifting, it's just not as noticeable as rally/dirt/drifting.

Yep, my Z28 is almost always slightly sideways when turning. That's the way you get it to turn in, vs. under steer.

Finally tried my car on snow! Took it easy on summer tires, but it did nice donuts!
