    I just wanted to say that it has snowed all weekend here at school and I decided to check the capabilities of my Taco. I must say I could NOT get it to fishtail or slip at all trying to spin around in the parking lot. I kept it in 2wd and guned it a few times and nothing. The only thing i had to do was put it in 4WL to park in an unplowed parking spot because in 2W the manual would make the tires spin even at low speeds.

    Yeah, they do pretty good. Your funnest bet is to go for the power slide: go real fast, off the gas turn sharp, then quickly back on the gas. Works well in 4hi to for making snow fly everywhere.

    haha thanks for the suggestion. I think the fact that my bed was full of snow helped
