Snow fun!

I have to say this truck in the snow is an absolute blast. This is the exact reason I bought it to have something fast year round and handles like a dream no matter what the conditions are.

I've got Pirelli scorpion snow and ice on the stock rims. Same sizes as the oem runflats. They are awesome in the snow. I've been in buffalo for the past month and we've had up to 2-3 feet of snow and I've had zero traction issues. With T/C on I can hug the roads all day once I turn it off the real fun starts and this thing drifts effortlessly.

I should update this thread.

The videos above were taken when my tune was off. When I put the tune back on this thing would do straight axis spins. Someone in stock form would kill the power when the diff was heating up.
