Well. its official, even in fourth gear, the car can't put down the power under boost with snow on the ground.

Other than that it's just as easy to drive as it ever was.

Wish we could all have that kind of fun. No snow here, my Speed 6 is turbo, and AWD and my 1996 Miata is all motor. All the right parts on the wrong car, dang Mazda

My turbo is worthless in the dry.

It's sitting in a box under my desk.

Idk how much power you're putting down, but my car's perfectly drivable in the snow with my Pirelli's

snow/rain + turbo = good way to drift and not destroy tires!

My Miata is afraid of snow, but my 1988 Honda Accord is brave enough.
