Hi Mike,

What kind of tires do you run in the snow? There is no way I could do what
you did with my V8 which has Pirelli P4000 tires. On snow, it feels like an
elephant on roller skates. I treat the gas pedal very gingerly because it
is all too easy to swap ends with the P4000s. This winter, I plan to put
some real snows on it, probably some Hakkas.
