I've driven in snow, mom used to live in oregon. They'd have roads up there blocked by drifts until mid may sometimes in the high passes around medicine lake. I'm not afraid to drive in deep snow or packed snow. The scary part is when the packed snow becomes ice, or when the snow melts down by the road and then glazes and you get ice under the snow. That's what bites you in the ass. snow isn't a big deal if you have good tires. Ice, well nothing is going to save your ass, you are going for a ride.

this could be a good idea
perhaps everyone that chips in $20 gets to vote on how to kill the current one

Of course the OP must post vids of it jumping bike ramps, etc

Maybe THAT is why it was having trouble, not because the snow was too deep.

rings don't go like that, even if the ring went you'd just have oil smoke out the exhaust bad and be overheating. More likely you sucked a valve that was sticking.

You just have to suck it up and make it happen

The way you scoffed about getting hung up in snow like its some sort of impossible feat told me all I needed to know.

Lets see some pics of this uber awesome SUV that can pull plow trucks out of the ditch.

These geo shells are popular for $1k-$2k electric conversions. How far is your work? Got a little cash?

Just cuz I am a redneck that loves my 4x4 and I know how to drive it doesn't mean it's an uber SUV. I never needed snow tires on my Escort, and drove it in every storm that we had here in Maine from '04-'09. Don't bring things out of proportion - go look at his pictures and tell me that is a lot of snow. My roommate has a 2wd Chevy shortbox with standard pickup all-seasons and he's been fine in all this snow we have up here. One day he disappeared since he was out doing donuts in unplowed parking lots all day long. Driver skill is a major player in snow driving.

I do get cocky about driving in deep snow - but for the past 15 years one of my favourite hobbies has been off-roading, and here in Maine it sometimes involves a lot of snow. You learn to deal with what you have, and I have learned that in snow, you are almost never completely stuck as long as it doesn't involve a huge ditch and shitty tires.
