    Um... my computer, duh.
    While it may be pretty and everything... Mustangs just don't handle well in any kind of snow. I had serious issues getting my car out on to the road this morning in only maybe an in and a half. And when I got it out I think I skidded the whole way... which was scary. And while it was falling last night, my back end spun out and I wound up on a curb. I really had no control over the car what so ever... Other than putting some weight in the trunk and I guess starting out in second gear (my dad told me to do that.. :p) does anyone have any pointers in how to handle a mustang in the snow? Hopefully inexpensive, too... Thanks!

    Normally I would be in the same boat(read last year) But this past summer I put about 200 pounds of stereo equipment in my trunk and that helped BIG time this year. So go get some subs some amps and a fiberglass box put in.








    No really the weight should help big time. and second gear also is very good for traction and response( you have an automatic right?)

    You think snow is bad, we got nothing but freezing rain here. Thats not snow on the ground its all ice. It makes it real fun trying to drive around in this crap. But it also has its pluses, like I am out of school today. :D

    Yeah, thanks for helping... heh.

    And I have NEW wheels, I think they were bought like... not 6 months ago. YOURE the one whose losing tread. :p donuts are fun, but only if you're in a parking lot - not when you're watching someone do them on the expressway right in front of you. :p

    I grew up in Chicago, and when we got snow there, well, it was just like any other day. Nothing closed down. We could get two feet of snow and I'd still have to walk my butt to school. But here, I've learned that they're not really prepared for it. It doesn't snow that often, so they have no reason to be. But because they're not prepared it makes it that much harder to drive.
