This was in about 4" of snow last night in Arlington, VA. The dude came over the median and across 2 lanes of Rt.50 traffic and ended up in this drainage ditch. I saw the very tail end where he slammed into this pit (air bags didn't go off btw). He had to crawl out the passenger side window. I asked him if he needed me to call 911 and he told me that he had it under control!
Sounds funny guys, but the best vehicle i have ever drove in the snow was a 07 dodge grand caravan with snow tires, ice studs and traction control. They are very stable vehicles. Dodges traction control system on the FWD cars is great. Its just like posi, as soon as it detects slip it engages both front tires. That thing would literally chew through snow banks and several feet of snow.
True story, my neighbor got his ZJ stuck in his lawn in the snow storm. I came flying down the road in my van blasted through the snow bank and drove past him in the snow covered lawn that he was stuck in waving and laughing... HAHAHA should have seen his face.
You do realize that you can lose control even if you are driving for conditions right? You also don't need to have it floored to lose control.
x2. Last year I was going about 35mph in part time with maybe 1" on the highway, back end kicked out, 360 against the barrier. If you catch ice or a slippery spot, you're going for a ride no matter how good of a driver you think you are.
