    I don't think he was actually trying to negate your post...just coincide with it perhaps?

    I love driving RWD in the snow...as long as you have the Good Driver mod going...you should be alright. Knowledge of how to drive safely in snow is the best thing you can do...and a Manual RWD is 5x better than an Automatic RWD

    Yeah I drove a mustang to tahoe in the snow once. It was interesting but I'm not really a snow person at all and I can't imagine doing it everyday if I lived in an area that snowed. Plus it gets the car dirty and we can't have that.

    I only had an e36 BMW, so it wasn't all that prestigious for keeping clean...but I loved it. So comfortable and the weight really helped it. I had to deal with some tough hills in Northern Jersey when I had it too...

    I had a Mustang and I hated it in the snow. Apparently the base model Z's are just as bad. My friend said his sucks pretty bad even in the rain. Bottom line, rain/snow sucks.

    My friend drives his Z in the snow. He just throws some heavy stuff in the trunk and gets dedicated snow tires. He says it does decently but he still has to be uber-careful.

    it is not meant to negate your post. I was just stating facts, i was vague, i meant the HR motor is rated at 306hp at crank, and it gets 275 rwhp.

    well, i drove mine only once, when i went to a nearby moutain, it was recently. I have toyo's 285/30 19 inch in the back , and i did fine, the snow i had to go through was only an inch. I mean it's not going to be as good as your STI's and Wrx's, but if you're careful, and have good tires, you are fine, however, ice is a different question. and i began to realize that the clutch is one of the things they have not even tried to improve. i might end up getting a new one soon.

    I'm pretty sure any wheel-equipped vehicle would be teh suck in the ice. I will rarely drive during an ice storm because, well, that's just a death trap. I have an ongoing struggle with wanting a RWD, mostly in the summer. I absolutely love the new Z's and Mustangs. Luckily, winter is approaching and that will reinforce my AWD decision.

    I know, but still you gotta drive sometimes, however, somebody mentioned the Traction control, i don't want to re-read all the posts, so i can quote what they said. however, i had to turn it off, in the snow couple of time because it completely killed the throttle. and sometimes whan you let the gas, the rear tires tended to slow down the car but if you hit an ice patch, it tended to slide, so it is an advantage, but it as well can be disadvantage. so it's so so
