Driving in snow

Surprisingly better than I remember on my 1999 with a nice little kick-out in turns. Very controllable if you feather the clutch. I don't recommend any sudden stops though ;p

Try 4 studded grips and 100 lbs of sand bags in the well.

I drove my Hawk back in 05-07 I believe it was, as a daily driver even in the snow. Had to be careful being a manual, but had no problems. My wife at the time drove her 02 Trans am year round, from Fredericksburg to DC, 7 days a week year round with no problems for 2 years. Hers was a auto. I had the rear on my kick out one time when the road was wet from rain. I learned quick to not hit the gas like that again in rain.
