As pointed out yesterday, you can drift anything with enough space and snow. Does this extend to RVs? Yes! Is it fast? No!
Winter will soon be upon us, and it’s a good to remember that virtually any car can drift if there’s enough snow and enough room.
It’s small, it’s economical, it’s unknown. It’s a Justy, and it’s got AWD.
Winter's icy embrace nears closure. The time has come.
As a person who has crashed a number of cars in a number of situations, let me tell you that I have never found a better way to wreck than in the snow.
If The Internet is to be believed, Subaru snow hoonage happens when a WRX is involved. But what about a simple Forester?

If there's ever proof of what a V8, 4lo, and a very good attitude can do, here it is.
Here's a great example of what happens when it's icy and you keep plenty of distance between you and the car you're following, and what happens when you don't.
