When I first read this thread, I thought the OP was just a crazy driver.

Today I drove about 20 miles in some heavy snow and every_single_time I turned an intersection the rear end CAME OUT! I drive like grandma btw. 25mph was my limit on the straights, and in corners it wasn't even on the speedo yet!

First time was a WTF well maybe it was tracks, but the next intersection was completely plowed and flat and IT DID IT AGAIN! and again, and again, and again! It was never a lot, if I had to guess the rears didn't go more than a foot out of their track, but still it was disconcerting.

Woah déjà vu

To anybody concerned about body roll. I say dont even worry about it. I have a 05 xB (the box) as the daily driver and I push it to its limits. Donuts after going 20 mph, super sharp turns that allows the back to skid. And In the winter I skid around every corner possible. Never lifted up off of the 4 wheels.

Maybe the fit is different I don know but I would assume its fine. (Im not responsible for anybody who tries it.) lol

i've done it here in fremont, over by the thornton southbound entrance to 880, I slide quite hard, butt of the car swung out, I was going sideways for a bit... it was quite scary, since my rear tires are a little low on meat.
