haha yeah 2 feet deep would pretty much guarantee hydroloc. I stay away from any puddles because I almost hydrolocked my Z06 underestimating the depth of a puddle. Instead of 4 inches deep it was a foot deep plus more probably.

Yes I stay away from all puddles. I will play in the rain, but not when there is a puddle in the street.


On a side note has anyone used the AEM filter sock? They recommend it due to its water resistant properties. I could see this maybe working for resisting splashes but there is no way it will save you if you submerge the car in water deep enough cover the entire filter element. Thoughts?
