the snow should be gone before any of us see our car but the salt on the other hand doesnt seem to get swept up till may
effing salt is such BS
Honestly if the snow isn't, a huge snow covered parking lot would be awesome. Set up some cones make a crazy auto-x course and see how the RS can dance.

if it gets cold enough there are clubs that organize ice racing. might be getting ahead of ourselves, but I always wanted to give it a go. love or hate the ice and snow, this will be my daily driver, so the plan is to get dedicated snows. currently I have my eye on 235/40/18 Hakkapeliitta 8's, but they wont help my drift game much, but on the plus side id have to be high centered to get stuck

Totally agree. The UpstateNYST group I belong to has some members that do some ice racing. They usually have beaters they use, but sometimes there are a few ST's out there. I think it would be awesome to get an RS on the ice and see how its dances.

I would be very interested in a track day, and playing on the ice should be a blast too (I have to assume you've all seen the video of testing in Sweden on the ice).

I've done some ice racing myself, not in a few years but it is a blast. I know the local group president CNY Ice racers. Insurance has been a problem as it's getting more difficult to obtain but if there is ice, they find a way.

welcome to the madness.
and the waiting game...
Thank you.


So my buddy told me he was listening to Matt Farror's podcast the other day, Farror said that all vehicles that's built in 2016 and being import to US will have a 90 days "inspection" period before it can ship to the dealers. Idk how true this is, but if it's true then we won't see our car until probably June or July.
