Consider it proof you have some power. Now, if it was dry, and you couldn't get any traction at speed...

J-mod + 3800 stall + crappy tires = traction problems :cool:

I have to watch out for the 1 > 2 hit when its really slick out.

i find that low profile tires have better traction in rain then regular tires do
but then again you get what you pay!

I hydroplained once while passing a big semi once on a highway going 110km/h. pressed the breaks in all the way and car kept on going staight as if nothing happened. I manage to get out of the situation unharmed as did every1 alse, but since then I drive carefuly in rain as if my life depends on it :S

like someone else said, you get what you pay for when it comes to tires... my normal tires, suck balls in the rain, however my summer wheels, with bfg KDW's on them are actually really good in the rain.

If you have an open dif like me it shouldn't even matter. I can be turning a corner WOT spinning like a mother the whole time and the car just goes around the corner no drama. the arse won't kick out. with LSD on my 4.6 it would. I guess 3 out of 4 tires having traction will do that! lol.
