I'm finding the Elegy Retro Custom very rewarding.

Vagner, Deluxo (non hover), Banshee 900R are all great fun if you love drifting.

The omnis is really fun. Its pretty drifty for an awd car but stays in control, so u can pull off some nice high speed slides. Pretty much anything that isnt fwd is pretty great though.

Pfffft.

I try and not have my feet touch the same ground that peasants walk and drive upon.

When you live among the clouds like the Floating God you are the snow is meaningless. Looks pretty though.

I'm probably one of the few who 'wimps out' and gets a car with 0 or as close to 0 'off-road traction loss' as possible.

I'm enjoying the Streiter in the snow, handles nicely. At least I am getting some use out of this overpriced SUV.

Well, Riata is nice and I agree that Comet Safari is a beast too.

Seems a good way to compare is to head to that tunnel by Mt Gordo. Inside is not affected by the snow, or snow handling

The Comet rally is incredible. Never driven a car that grips so well in the snow.

Retinue is fun - a lot of people compare the really responsive handling to the regular Kuruma, and I agree with that comparison, but unlike the Kuruma, it's RWD. It's not tail-happy enough that you really notice in regular conditions, but the snow drives a neat wedge between the Kuruma's grippiness, and the Retinue's snappy steering, but without that AWD traction.

The end result? A car that resists spinning out horribly at the slightest bit of driver error (and admittedly doesn't have the most impressive engine - don't try any icy hill starts with it!), but still lets you swing out the back end for a decent bit of 'snow drifting'.

 

 

....'snow drifting' - geddit? :colgate:

Oracle XS is great fun if you like going sideways around corners.

Vapid Hotknife.

For real, though, I finally snagged the Pisswasser Dominator yesterday afternoon and I was able to go full throttle in the city with few issues.

Pretty sure they released this just so I could drive this single car in the snow. New snow champ. Handling all over the place. Perfect for doing donuts in front of Arcadius.

I spent a winter in the 80's in school in Idaho. First time ever in the snow, and they get like 2 feet all winter. I drove a 68 Chevy Impala 4-door with a dent in virtually every body panel and a snow and mud tire on the right rear. Drove like a dream. Wonderful car. Had no tags or title, paid $200 cash for it, left it abandoned in a Waffle Shop parking lot when I left.

 

Then the engine blew on my buddy's 66 Chevy pu before we were out of the state. Took his Datsun 510 off the trailer, circled back and got the Impala, had a local gas station swap the good 327 out of the Impala and into my friend's pu. Paid them with the remains of the Impala. He drove the pu with that engine for years.

 

But yeah tl;dr put a snow tire on the right rear and that's how we drove everything in the snow.

...for offroading you don't see much in cockpit perspective, especially in the Riata, the hoodview is so much better for this.

My 2nd character always liked big SUVs for her snow car but this year I always find her in her white on white Bestia. Car drives wonderfully in the snow with its balance. And the scream of the V12 in first person is a plus.
