out playin in the snow ^_^

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.

nice, just remember though, if your spinning tires pretty fast and then all of a sudden you get grip and the tires stop spinning that puts a ton of stress on your drivetrain(not sure how much of an issue that is w/the bug since its pretty light)

actualy show can be a pain in the ass. rain is good tho, keeps the crops healthy and makes lots of mud which is also fun.
