ha yeah i love it! i run nokians and have pulled 90-100 mph turns
through long, mellow turns getting near the summit, on hardpack fresh snow,
no traffic of course. or pulling off and taking unplowed backroads when
some tool in an SUV crashes and stops traffic on 80 for hours. i am a powder
fiend so i always seem to be driving up in the middle of a severe winter
storm. they ride on rails. heck, the "fastest" rally in the WRC is sweden,
run in january on show.
