So, should I switch my summer tires with bald all-season tires tomorrow?
They don't look good, both of them, let me tell you.

The only thing I'm afraid of is some stupid drivers who don't know how to behave. :shoots:

I took the trac today for some fun in the snow. This is the first time i've takin it on so much snow. I've drivin it on snow before but nothing like this and it handled perfectly. I let the snow add up a bunch before i pulled it out and it took off like if it was on dry land.

Beautiful handling. 8)

I wish I had pics

18-24" yowza. Last year we got probably about 40+" and the alltrac didn't move, since it was buried under what felt like 6 feet of snow, until about 17 hours of shoveling later.

You guys have fun :)

well I was out last night and there was probably about 6 inches or so laying around, pretty fun if you ask me. 95 was a ghost town, I kinda had it all to myself :D , but now I look out the window and the trac is damn near buried by a snow drift, oh well time to pull out the shovel. I'd have to say as of right now here in North Providence, RI we have about 16-17 inches laying around.

*edit* - So ya the governor of RI just put RI into a state of Emergency, well I'll tell you this, emergency or not the Pats are playing tonight and I need to get to my buddies, ha emergency I laugh at the thought :evil:

:lol:

Actually, they weren't too bad, as long as I was driving with some sense.. :bangshead:
I had a bit of overconfidence remembering how it was with allseason radials. Took a downhill turn waaaay to fast [accelerated into it]. I slid to the other side, but was still allright 'til a car came over the hill at me. It was hit it head on or dive onto a rock wall....... :cry:

At least I got the 92 out of it. As much as it sucks, if I hadn't wrecked it, I might not have gotten/kept the 92, and it's in much better shape.

Ha thats what my car looked like yesterday too, I just put the sucker in reverse and wham I was magically unstuck :D

Gary, I really dont know whats going on, but I havent hit fuel cut since I got home after working on the car with you and Jeremy. (I think maybe one other time) With the cold/snow I thought for sure I was going to hit it all day, but not even once. I'm still in the process of getting the last thing I need to build the defencer. after that the boost it going up (well after I get a boost controller that is)
