I want my 1:28 back!

I was waiting for you to do a 360 or something exciting.

Default 2009 song sounds like it's from the 50s

That's Meaghan Smith, from a 2009 EP. I had not heard it until a co-worker gave me a Christmas CD. It's probably the second-sexiest Christmas song I know, behind Santa Baby!

Well it sounds like fun to drive in the snow, but I backed out of the garage and didn't have the heart to do it. We had 12" snow yesterday, the most snow in a 24 hour period in 30 years.

Nice Vid! I find snow mode very useful in take-offs from icy intersections, seems like it limits the torque so the wheels don't spin as much.

Washed mined on xmas eve! Merry Christmas CL!

I used it last Thursday when I flew back from New York to Dallas. The roads were icy and the people were driving like idiots...(seriously, tailgating on ice? not smart...) It worked GREAT and the little "beep beep" that says, "It's in your hands big boy, I tried.." only happened twice.

The car got really trashed from the slush and I have to admit, I drove thru a brushless wash today only because my hose is still frozen... but at least got the vast majority of it off... all in time to drive to the airport tomorrow for a trip to New Jersey!

what it does is put your car in second gear, which makes it harder to spin the wheels.
