Default Sliding/Drifting in the Snow

Is it okay to drift/slide on the roads when it's completely covered in snow. I enjoy doing it very much as long as there's no cars around me. I only do it on smooth roads where I know there isn't any pot holes or curbs near by. Would this hurt anything on my car by drifting?

As long as your tires aren't spinning at high rpm for long periods of time then no worries. Light "easy" drifting on snow is fine.

I hate rwd, loooove my fwd. I just googled "can drifting hurt your car?". And pretty much the real worry is crashing, or nailing a curb, etc.

I've done it in every car I've owned, usually a empty parking lot lol. I've never had a problem, yet.

So id say your fine.

Yeah, it's under 30mphs..I normally go around corners at about 5-10 mphs and then push the gas.

Fwd is a blast bc you got the e-brake, but rwd is for real drifting!

Yeah, rwd is really nice. You just got to control your iron foot if you have one...Shoot I went to pull into a car lot the other day and did a 270. Parked perfectly into a parking space. It was pretty badass

No it's not okay. It's illegal.

Would it hurt anything? More than likely not. BUT you can roll a tire off the rim, blow the engine, roast the trans etc...

Gotta pay if you wanna play.

How can you love fwd? I hate fwd with a passion. They drive weird, they feel weird and there is nowhere near the control that you have in a rwd car.

I will never own a fwd vehicle. I can tolerate AWD but I don't much care for it either.

Oh yeah? I was cruising down the highway in my 350Z at 85mph in an ice storm with 8" of snow on the ground, drove it down the off ramp, through a ditch, rolled it 17 times, jerked one out in mid air and blew my load on Taylor Swift's face, landed on the wheels, drifted the corner, spun it around 5 times and stopped perfectly in my parking spot at work while high on mushrooms.

It was pretty badass.

I'm a rwd fan as well, my last stupid idea was doing highway pulls at 2 in the morning with the roads frosted over.
