I was probably mistaken about getting wheelspin on the Caddies, forgot they were auto. Come to think of it I don't know too many autos that can ever wheelspin from a stop. Wheelspin is definitely a problem with any manual though, and most high-powered FWD cars have problems with torque steer. Heck I get it on my 100hp car.

About the snow, perhaps I am again mistaken. Traction control is getting really cheap though, no??? Seems like if someone can afford to get a 260hp FWD car, they could afford a RWD car and order the traction control.

I'm from Michigan by the way, and a bunch of people in my High School had 5.0's or pickups and none of them had the money to have a second "winter car". The only spin-out I know of is my friend who flipped his FWD Probe. Odd...
