    Please take your weather back. We don't know what to do with this weird white rain.

    Thanks

    All you need to know is 2 things. First, steer into the spin and secondly even if you have 4-wheel drive you will not stop any quicker. This is from years of experience of living in CO looking at cars with TX plates in the ditch:)

    Yup. My driver training growing up in CO started with: 4 wheel drive doesn't mean 4 wheel stop.

    usually 4WD just means you hit something at a higher speed ;)

    Nearly froze to death on my way in to work this morning. I'm going to the Stars game tonight so maybe it is just part of the experience.
    I thought I left the cold weather in Utah.

    No Greg, you got it wrong and it is very important that you pass along the correct information.
    The correct rule is...
    • "steer away from the spin and stomp on the gas..."
    Oh no, wait...that's what you do in an empty parking lot for fun.
    Sorry my bad. :D

    No snow last night, but I did have the pleasure of driving a Mondial to Preston Hollow, top down, on the tollway. Cold is cold.. but I didn't seem to mind much.

    Now, if I can just get the 70k Service on the Rs6 finished up in time for the drive tomorrow, so I can get some of that 4 wheels steering action if needed.

    "steer away from the spin and stomp on the gas..."

    this is an especially fun technique to practice in the 930..
