Golf mk7 / Re: What are your .:Rs like in the snow?
« Last post by CHB100 on Today at 14:17 »
Mine has been great the last 2 days, today being the toughest test. I put in eco, and we've had a fair bit of snow here that is -8C hard as a rock and compacted. LIve in an ungritted village lane!!!!!! I have a steepish driveway that our other GTI just cannot handle. The R can have a little front wheel spin but not had all 4 give way yet. My first awd and love it, in the past I would never have done the trips of the last 2 days.

Road has thawed in last hour, couldn't walk on it this morning

If there’d been any snow lasted long enough to drive it in, I’d tell you, but the smattering we had on Sun was melted within an hour of falling.

Why do you want to turn it off in the first place and was it that gently you were pulling away from the junction? Plenty of black ice on our roads at the moment which no car can overcome.

Because I like to control the throttle not the car & Yes it was gently applying going up a hill, had I been in control of the throttle could limit the wheel spin my self.

I come from a MK3 Focus St that you could fully switch it off.

Had I come accross black ice I could have easily corrected it with my right foot.

P.S Why would you not want full control over your car?

I think it is because a number think the throttle is either on of off and do not realise there is an in between.

Case in point is there are a number who have traded theirs for M2s and are scared to drive them in the wet as they have not mastered the in between (ironic as its actually the better car in the wet)

Winters on the wagon and fine, sit there with the heated seats on waiting for the wheel spinners to come to a halt and reverse
