Surely you guys have to have some cool pictures from the weekend!

I was REAL lucky in my other vehicle this weekend. Did a 180 on Washington Blvd, barely missing a car, a guardrail and two trees!

We don't drive like you VA/DC folks...

We see this stuff all the time. Just not 30 inches of it in my driveway from one storm...

We have another storm forecast for tomorrow, 6-8 more inches.

Our boy Scot Yount was doing us proud, braving the elements with no sleep.

Dave, is the Subbie under one of those piles? Hope it's not a white car! The last picture is so prominent that it made the front page of the NY Times today. Either that or the Washington Post. That's sick!

We only got about 7" in Eastern CT. The way they hyped it up I was hoping I'd have to winch my way out of the driveway, but .

Defenders are full time 4WD, you can't do donuts

I hate to admit this wit h4WD all the time then... I once spun my D90 on an icy road. 3 full revolutions, almost in a straight line. Did the same thing years ago in a Plymouth Horizon in NE PA. 7 revolutions straight line down hill. Excellent driving skills and 90% luck.
Screamed my head off. I love black ice. Hey, another reason why I moved to CA.

Hmm Jimmy won't let me in his 90 (otherwise I would have pics for you right now) but once mine is running I can try, I have done 180 but never full 360. I the best way to do it is to spinn the wheels all the way one way hit the gas in first and cut the wheels the other way.

Back when I lived in Maine (and owned my '66 109), the kids and I took the family Corolla out for a few 'spins' on Lake Meginticook. Serious fun! -- but a bit to cold to get endless spirals across the lake. Pitch the wheel and pull the e-brake like a rally car....

I have some pics of some good hard rock action, one gently laying on its side. Would that count? Probably not, no snow!

Nah, I'm lucky to have garage spots for both. But the subbie is good fun for some e-brake driving. However I did smoke the traction control a little while making my way out on Sunday.

Yes, that last pic was from the Boston Globe I think. Probably the other news wires.

I love the snow and cold. But having this much snow in a city is nuts. There is nowhere to put it. Most of the 2 and 3 lane major roads are down to 1 lane. Makes getting around a little difficult and frustrating.

Yes you can!!!

30 MPH, WITHOUT the Difflock, Pull the E Brake, Keep you foot on the gas, so the front wheels keep turning.

You can also pivot on the rear end with the E brake on and difflock off from a standing start.

Now I think it would be easy to brake something, but it can be done.

Driver's manual says never to put on the ebrake while moving. My truck freaks out if I do it accidentally -- feels like the whole drive line is going to hit the pavement.

Now a traditional anycar e-brake is another matter.

i second that. i don't think pulling the transmission brake ("ebrake") is a good idea while in motion...

No matter what, doing a donut is not good.
My upbringing - England and Italy - had you working the hand brake and the clutch all the time. I had a Vauxhall SR-5 (a VW GTI on roids) once and snapped the hand brake cable AND burnt out the clutch in one weekend. Now, that was a bit difficult to explain to my sales manager on why I was not on the road and the car was in the shop. BUT DAMN WAS IT FUN! RALLY SPORT RULES
