Yeah, everything in your area and south of it (down to the Gulf of Mexico) literally shuts down.

Would rather be trapped at home in your place than anywhere up here.

Don’t forget to wrap the bikes up in a blanket to keep them comfy and warm 😁

Wrong as fuck on snow. Hope they are really wrong on the temp. Fuck that temp. That's just dumb.

Cold temps just gave me a butt pucker moment.

Ok, I always turn off my DSC when I get in the car. The traction control doesn’t like the hot tune in the car, and basically cuts power at anything above 1/2 throttle.

Well DSC off does not turn off eLSD. When one wheel slips, the ABS picks it up and brakes the wheel spinning to give traction to the other side.

So..on my way home was driving normal. Took the right onto Ogden from Eola. Gave it about 1/4ish throttle. Hit black ice on my RR tire. Tire spun up, engine revved up…this spooling the turbos to full boost. THEN the eLSD kicked in and shot the car sideways in the blink of an eye.

Fortunately the street was wide enough for me to save it. Cannot believe how unsafe the eLSD is in this kind of situation. I can tear it up in heavy snow and it’s totally controlled.

Any kind of Limited slip on a wet turn imo is flat out dangerous. I just sold my Marauder and warned him that it was a drivers car with no fancy traction control or safeties built in and to never ever ever give it gas on a curve or turn. It’s great for going straight unless you fishtail, but turns? Forget about it. I absolutely love my open diffs on my F150 for daily driving. If it gets slippery I just toggle the switch and let the front end help. The only worries of turning is too much momentum and shear body weight putting me into a slide, other than that no issue at all powering thru a turn.

Total, 6".

Went out Saturday night while the roads were still covered and fucked around on my way to the store. Of course I pull out of my subdivision and not even 100yds later, someone pulls out in front of me and proceeds to do 15 in a 55. I couldn't see the double yellows when I passed them. :s00ls:

Slated for arrival, not this weekend, but next??? Some meteorologists predicting some areas will be hit with a foot of snow. Looks like the lake effect will nullify winter’s efforts for us 🤣
