Well, that's OK, as long as you realize that it will take several weeks for the hot tub to get back to its full therapeutic mode.

That's the driver-controlled snow mode. Ice mode is hard-coded into the ABS. The brake on a specific wheel is literally disabled if the wheel lifts while it's being used. I'm not able to drive aggressively enough to have experienced it - stock tires on purpose.

I'm not sure what that all means when it comes down to a puppy but it sounds great!

Sorry, I prefer clear water. I put in enough bromine to kill my toe nail fungus. Nothing is growing in that water.

It's when the abs thinks you have no traction and releases the brakes for you so the tires turn... a prerequisite for traction on ice but when racing, just really bad.


Hard on the brakes... Behaves as if you were coasting in neutral.
