    When it snowed here last year, a guy at work was like "you're gonna go home and take the Viper out to do donuts aren't you?" I didn't...but if I had a big empty parking lot by my house...would've been tempting :D

    Could have told him you didn't need snow in your Viper to do donuts...

    With a Viper you don't need snow to do donuts in a parking lot.

    Currently on the internet searching out any information I can find about "Snow" and what it is. So far, found something about don't eat yellow snow. Still searching out what "Snow" actually is. Based on the videos, want to avoid it at all costs down here in San Antonio.

    if you can afford a viper, you should be able to cough up enough money for a set of chains. :D

    What'd he have slicks on or something. Dang I would have bet it was impossible to get that stuck in that little snow.

    Been there done that in my old RT. It had the junky Michelins on them as well. The only way to get around was in reverse. Somehow the V-tread worked a lot better going opposite!

    Wasn't there a poster on here last Xmas that was driving from Chicago to LA and wanted to go through the Rockies in Colorado?

    Everyone told him to head south and not take I-70. He didn't and ended up almost getting stuck going through the mountains and added 7 some hours to his trip??

    I too have thought of taking the Viper to the local mall lot when there is just a small amount of snow. The problem has been I live on a hill and would have to go down, then up and both are dicey propositions so it's never happened. I was going to back the car out of the driveway into 2 feet of snow just for the photo-op, but it was spring time and the snow was mostly melted by time I got up and was ready.
