according to your profile, your 15.
true or false?
yeah, i dont have auto stick in my car yet, but i hope to put it in before long.. I've got knobby tires on the intrepid right now, i think they will do great in the snow, every time i end up spinning the wheels in the yard it digs down atleast 5 inchest every time it slips, but the tires suck ass in the rain i can never get them to hook up!
Yes it is true that i'm only 15, is that a problem?
speepdaedeesi, dont let go of the gas that could cause you to loose control even more expecaly if the car down shifts, it'll lock up the wheels and you'll be going for a fun ride then! if you need to let off the gas be easy with it dont just go from half trottle to none.. As people have said if you start to fish tail or go in to a slide give it gas and dont let off till your out of the slide or the fishtial, but if your heading for a ditch um i dunno what to tell you man! Do your best to keep the wheels from locking up or spinning, slow starts, keep your engine warmed up b4 you take off incase you have to give it gas and it revs up..
Windshield washerfluid, rain-x has worked awsome for me in the past it should melt the ice right away, you might wanna look around and read up on some products tough! Make sure you have plenty of time to spare incase somthing happens, you slide off in a ditch anything, dont get in to a rush, and keep an eye out for things, be aware of your surroundings(spl?)!!
