Look, i think it's great that you care about your car so much. All I am saying is that you really need to learn to drive on snow/ice before you go out and drive along side with the rest of us. Nothing you did is going to damage your car, granted redlining it for 20 minutes or for however long you did, probably isn't be best thing for her, but she'll be fine. Also, nothing you did was the right thing to get yourself off of the ice. What I was talking about when i was concerned that you would hit dry pavement is that you'd grab traction, then send you car flying in some direction and hurt someone, yourself or your car. I've seen it. just don't be a retard about driving when your out on OUR roads.
