I finally got a chance to test out my prerunner with some of the white stuff on two separate occasions over the weekend. I had ~150lbs of sand and cargo in bed, full tank of gas and stock dueler HT's w/ ~15k miles on them.
The first time there was probably an inch or two of slush. This was my first time in my prerunner with snow so I was testing out the waters. VSC would kick in any time I gave it too much skinny pedal, especially going around turns. If I kept it slow and steady, even on inclines, it was quiet and it just kept truckin'.
Something I noticed was that the VSC light would blink sometimes, but only a couple times would the "grinding" noise from the engine occur that cut power. I'm guessing this is VSC warning you with the blinking light without actually engaging.
I was also surprised how VSC didn't always kick in when doing donuts. I read the user manual again and I didn't realize VSC took steering direction into consideration. I think when I was going in circles (bigger donuts) and the steering wheel was turned a certain way the VSC thought things were "okay". Maybe I wasn't giving enough gas.
The second time there was about 3 inches on the ground, below freezing. This time my route had more inclines. Vehicles were spinning all over the road, including the inclines. I kept the rpm's low in Drive (around 1k rpm), and the VSC din't kick in at all. I didn't even need to engage AutoLSD, which I was ready to on the inclines where I might not have gotten enough traction to get up the hill.
This might seem puny to guys further up north, but it was good to get a feel of whats possible. I'm hoping to get some more snow to push the limit again. Any comments/similar experiences welcome!
