Today it is the elements that have fought back against our nation’s craftiest. I believe she has the strength to endure, as she always has.
I don’t know how many times I’ve had to listen to people explain that they need an all-wheel drive SUV because they live someplace where it snows in the winter. This rear-drive BMW 650i rally car laughs at those pansy-ass trucks.
This Subaru owner thought he was doing everything right. He had a nice all-wheel drive Forester, he was adjusting his tire pressures for better traction and he figured he was as ready for the snow as anyone could be. But the snow had other ideas and sent a van crashing into the side of his car.
Anti-lock brakes are a godsend for everyday driving, but what happens when you’re driving on a snow-covered road this winter? Does ABS actually help you stop any better? Well, it does and it doesn’t. It turns out you do need some technique.
As the nation transitions from the “oh it’s cold now” stage of winter to the “shit just got real” stage, driving becomes a real challenge. We now face blinding blizzards, stinging ice and, in the case of Northern California, some rain.
For the first time in North America, you can order a car from the factory with winter tires, and the new Ford Focus RS is the first car to get the package. It’s as if it’s designed for snow hoonage out of the box!
This is how a Lamborghini Diablo VT 6.0 is meant to be used—in the most ridiculous fashion possible.
I’ve never heard of the Merrill Ice Drags in Wisconsin before, but I feel a sudden urge to attend.
When life gives you snow, make snownuts.
Winter snow is upon us. Here is a reminder that there is nothing that you can do. You car will be destroyed. Abandon any shred of hope you had to make it out unscathed.
Former F1 and current WRC driver Robert Kubica crashed out of the Monte Carlo Rally today with this agonizingly slow crash. Watch how quickly his day gets ruined on a patch of icy road.
In two days, two feet of snow will fall on my place of residence. I will be out in my weedy little rear-drive car, making the most of it. But driving in the winter isn’t always a powerslider’s paradise.
Here’s why you have to keep your wits on poorly-marked roads this winter.
This dashcam video shows what can go wrong if you’re lazy and you don’t clear that huge block of snow and ice off of the roof of your car—it can fly off and crush the car behind you.
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.
How do you get a 2015 Mustang to tear things up on a frozen lake? You're going to need some custom 20" tires with 3200 studs fitted by hand. Yes, this is crazy wonderful.
Winter's icy embrace nears closure. The time has come.
