    3" of Snow on the road

    Glad I got new tires last week. Such an odd Winter we've had this season in regards to snowfall. Anyone got plans for playing in the white stuff?

    Days like this, I love owning a Subaru. Now I just need to dodge all the *******s on the road.

    Yeah, I'm a jackass and put my summer tires on last weekend.

    Falken RT-615 made it a very interesting ride in this morning. I'm not looking forward to the ride home.

    I cant keep from spinning the tires when I get on boost.... I have to keep the revs below 3000.... I can drift like a mofo though when I find a good lot

    My car has enough power to slide sideways when it's dry out, in the snow - it's a bit more pronounced. I mostly stay in low boost in the snow, probably like 5-7psi.

    Ya, I had no traction this morning but my work parking lot was great!

    I'm lazy because I just bough a 2nd set of stock wheels with almost brand new RE92 tread and they are in my closet.

    Yes, I know. I guess it was my way of saying, "**** you winter! I'm done with you. You didn't even really show up anyway, so what makes you think you can come around now anyway? A day late and a dollar short!" At least I'm not bitter.

    Glad it was OK.

    No problems with the RE92s today.

    I am driving a big salt lick again.
