Cool The Beauty of All Wheel Drive

What more can I say?

4 inches this morning and more to come. I say bring it on.

Looking forward to the drive home and some snow related festivities later this evening.

Step aside Burns...

I'm glad I checked my email before going to work since I found out that my work will be closed from 12pm on. That would've sucked if I had to drive two hours in bumper to bumper traffic just to go back home.

Anyone wanna have a drifting competition today?

I've gotten pretty good at E-brake maneuvers on my FWD.hehe.

Man...I had to drive ALL the way to Tinley Park this morning, and when I get there, the boss says...oops, I forgot to call you....we were going to take the day off!!! What the @#$%?!

Anyways, I'm so pissed off, because I didn't buy any winter tires. I thought I could get away with it, but then today came!!! Anybody know where I can get some good ones for a decent price?!

7 inches around here and counting.

I personally called into work cause I got in so f'n late last night and decided to say screw it. I got enough sleep and I got to go play in the snow and freak out a LOT of people in SUV's already. God I love drifting.

Oh my god! Thats my car on the picture..... oh, n/m DOH!!!

The Good The Bad The Ugly

Good - Plowing trough the snow in first gear

Bad - Braking on snow with RE92s

Ugly - Driving in chicago snow traffic

People, watch out for those non-AWD cars that have a tendency to run into you.

Also I think i need Snow tires too, where what and how much?
Anyone else getting some, maybe we could get some together, maybe get a discount.

Mr. X, try your local Firestone retailer. I got a set of four WS-15 Blizzaks, still the king in deep snow, mounted and balanced for $390-something.

I went for the stock size, since I got the P1 rims.
