    it doesn't take much power to make a tire slip on ice.

    I wouldnt worry, Mine slipped at a stop sign.

    I got to the stop sign, let off the brakes, and started sliding sideways. Applied the brakes, stopped.

    Its even worse if you have a locker!

    just make sure you shift into neutral and let the tires stop spinning before it goes into park. ive done it once, and that was enough to make sure i never did it again. i can just imagine how much my parking tab loved me.
