Yea, but I've found it makes driving through the snow that much more mindless, whether that is a good thing or not, I don't know, but I have not made that car fishtail, but the dodge caravan does really easily.

I dunno... whenever I'm in the snow I'm surrounded by stupid, and I'm passed by people speeding. Not very safe. I've seen too many people slide off/spin out because they have oversteer or understeer.
