Did a half donut.. ebrake of course.

Wicked slides..

Interesting braking (half way in the intersection)

Burn outs lol.. in my friends Civic of course! Lit the snow up.. melted it away and started to burn rubber. Classic.

Pictures of mine while snow is falling. (I think the effect looks cool cause it was dark outside)

It ain't. My school's parking lot is HUGE and it was covered in fresh snow a couple days ago. I think I doubled my turning diameter! Car was sliding everywhere, didn't use teh e-brake though, I probably should've, the rear end didn't feel like it let go from the snow. Though the car definately drifted despite the directions of the front wheels :)

I have to go drive home now in 8" of snow. That is going to suck. I barely made it to work this morning with 1" of snow on the ground. The rs/a tires on my car absoutely suck.

I do have a story actually I just remembered it. A week or so ago we got a few inches here and I was going into a parking lot that has a pretty wide entrance and nobody around so I did a 4 wheel drift into the parking area using the E-brake. I was sliding pretty good and it was sliding close to this small concrete bit that marked the split between the two lots. Since I didn't want to tank one of my wheels in the first month I just tapped the brake lightly a couple times and she straightened right out, pretty nice. The car isn't all that sticky with those tires in the snow but it responds nicely to driver input.

I made it home, the car definately has a hard pull to the right, (torque steer) when the car first starts off. Oh the car performed great in 8" of snow, on the wet stuff it spun, slid, and jerked the heck out of me.

Ok, I dont think ive ever had this much fun with a car in the snow.

I was doing full figure 8s in this parking lot last night with some huge controlled drifts (Well, since you cant drift in a FWD, sliding with style would be the better term). The car responds perfectly to light taps of the pedal or brake and every little turn of the steering wheel. I was tempted to start doing donuts around lamppost, but....figured I liked my car too much to hurt her.

Cudo's to Mazda, what a fun car to drive!
