    While going to lunch with my g/f I stopped at a redlight. It was raining really hard. Light turns green I press the gas and start making my turn. Half way into the turn back end slides about 3 feet and I almost hit a van. Now I didn't punch the gas. I was taking the turn very slow. Now my next project will be to "sipe" the inside tread of my Swampers.Anyone had this problem? And will "siping" my tread help?

    Burts right sometimes it will take a few days for the oil to come to the surface and some places are worse than others like gas stations.

    Um, yes my blazer does that with the locker in the rear.
    Doesn't take much gas to get it sideways in the rain. Sometimes i'll do it just for fun. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    And today it was pouring... and i have the front end of my blazer all taken apart so i was driving the camaro... let me just say that with over 400 RW HP and TQ it is scary to drive in the rain. The slightest amount of throttle and its squirrly.
    Even just cruising at like 35mph. Kinda fun though. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
