    Not so fun day.. need a little advice

    Alright well to start off I had recently gotten my amazing 2015 WRX I love it to death, well like the lovely weather we are having here in Illinois I had a misadventure today when I was driving and hit slush and spun my car around into a little fluffy snow bank into a ditch.. my car is fine thank god but Really wish I would have had the money for my snow tires before the snow fell so I could enjoy this weather A little. So long story short I got it out of the ditch safe and sound with nothing besides snow in every part of my tires, the only thing which is why im posting.. im seeming to not be boosting properly, its showing I am and the turbo is spooling fine it seems its just not getting it. I just wanted to ask if maybe its just all the snow around the tires thats causing it just not launching right or im just really parinoid .

    Do you have traction control on? If you are still running the stock summer tires then it is not surprise to me that you are having traction problems. Either way, with traction control on the car will cut power when it realizes one or more of the wheels are spinning. This could be the "lack of power" you are feeling.

    Yeah traction control was on, I hit just a huge pile of slush and fish tailed im glad I was able to hold on to it and put myself in the ditch rather a tree. I just really wanted to get my snow tires but unfortunately lwith the timing of getting my car I wasnt able to afford it. Today it seemed to be pulling like normal

    Yes, I mean Im not trying to go fast, but after yesteday if I had any dry road I just tested it to see and it seems to be doing okay but I thinkthe snow that's still stuck in my wheel wells are causing the small pull.

    the pull is mostly from the back and traction control engages

    I'm slightly confused here. When the traction control kicks in it will cut power period. That may be what you are experiencing.
