Hehe..I had a Trans Am WS6 with some bolt ons putting out that about that power and I drove it in the winter when I lived up North..I couldn't afford to have a second car and store the T/A at the time.
I put some GOOD winter tires and rims on that and 100lbs of sand bags in the rear...BEST vehicle I have had in the snow..better than the 4wd Trailblazer I had with regular A/T tires on it.
The 6 speed actually was nice in the snow, as I had more control over the car and traction than in an automatic IMO.
I just could not get that thing stuck! It was so much fun and the looks on peoples faces when they were stuck along roads and even the interstate while I plowed by was priceless!
For anyone who complains about a RWD car being bad in the snow...put some snow tires on it, that is what they are for. Anything can drive in the snow with snow tires and some weight in the back..I proved it with my car haha
I am going to be so jealous of you if you get a *TS-V as that is my next car and I am saving for a house right now and because of that I would have to take a loan on it and I just can't justify ever having a car payment :(
So until I can save the cash...it'* no CTS-V for me... Now if someone would pay me $15k for my car then it would be a different story lol
