RE: Street race

Our(dads) 1970 Porsche 911T is surprisingly a decent snow car. It stops
very well but the rear end is very happy!  When it is pushed a little to
hard there is no stopping that pendulum from from swinging around.  Quite
amusing however.  It will  get moving okay in the snow but nothing
compared to the Q with the Blizzaks!
