i was out playing in the snow with my bug(no traffic) just a little bit ago, and i only have one thing to say:
HOLLY MOTHER OF GOD!
this thing is extremely fun to drive in the snow. its insane. i can go through first, second, and third gear in under 5 seconds(thank god for short shifters) while only going about 5MPH. there is no traction in the back at all when i hit the gas hard. it slides around easily and is easy to recover. its basicly like driving a big go-cart. anyways... after driving around for a while, someone passed my while i was going sideways. i looked back and he started doing the same. i thought "oh this should be fun". he turns around and starts fallowing me, so obviously i go for the empty parking lot. i slide in, and hes sliding in right behind me and we just start tearing up the parking lot, we were all over the place. after a while he stopped, gave me a thumbs up and went on his way. still have no idea who it was, he was driving a 90's cougar, the RWD ones. it was ALOT of fun.
