Getting mustang v6 to work in snow good....

Winter is coming. I need this car pretty much every day. It's not a garage kept one so I don't care about snow getting on or around it, but the car is dropped and it's a v6 so it still has torque. How can I make this work on snow without spinning out or dying?

Snow tires are your best bet.

I use studded tires, 120lbs of sand in my trunk and my T-Lok.

It does amazingly well with just those three things. It'll push its way through fresh snow and does amazing on ice and compact snow.

2000 Prochaged V6. T-lok, Mach 1 takeoff exhaust with H-pipe, 20% tint, OEM fogs and all HIDs.

SAE Corrected: 289HP/298TQ at 5100RPM(Pegged MAF).

Even if you have good tread on all season tires get snow tires. Theyre different than normal tires. Then sand bags in the back and take plowed roads more often.

Little extra weight (which some of us might do out of habit from trucks, etc) and just use common sense.

and do not give it very much gas around corners. Go find an icy empty parking lot and practice loosing control and re gaining it, will be helpfull and fun
