Talking God I love my little car!

This car was obviously made for fun and frolicking in the snow!

Comfort mode, traction activated, five finger death punch blasting out the speakers, and going sideways around every corner. I don't think I'll ever grow up.

think I'll have to go ahead and agree with you there

allthough traction will allow some drifting but only when u press and hold it turns everything off completely, thats what I do. Beware though, nothing will come in handy and help out if a drift goes out of control in this mode

I will go to a frozen lake to play the first weekend in February, so I hope to have some pictures of a Valencia Orange F20 going more sideways in the snow after that...

while we await some proper high-res pics from ovekvam I can contribute with a couple of pics of my own:
sorry for bad quality













would be cool to try one of those lake-tracks some time. I've never done that. I don't know when and where it happens. Also Ove, do you have proper rally/racing tyres with massive spikes or do you just go with your standard tyres? I guess if it's packed snow normal tyres would be ok but if it's pretty much plain solid ice?

I use regular tires, but we need some of the cars to be running with rally tires to keep the ice from being polished. They provide traction for the rest of us.
