MaxA said:My little MINI is covered in muck and now wearing its 16x7 Team Dynamics and 195/55-16 Nokian Hakkapeliitta8 studded winters. There obviously isn't so much grip but the Quaife seems to put it down quite well.
My boy is dreaming of the days when the sea freezes over so we can cut a little track out there on the ice and practise driving, sliding, handbrake turns, over- and understeer. He's begging me not to refit the Sparco bucket seat so that his cousins (my nephews) can all also have a go!
You might think I'm mad, but there isn't much harm you can do on the ice as there's no snow banks, nothing to hit and no grip so there's no need to rev it out - it's all about managing the little available grip at modest revs, so I'm tempted to just let him out ... until I get cold, and need to defrost in the car.
Well, we're suffering from the mildest winter in 100 years so no ice-driving for us...
Car is still brown. Although sometimes the dirt freeze-dries and you can juts brush off the top 2-3mm layer.
This is not a country for detailers.
