I am new to this forum, but I have been a Ford enthusiast for many years, particularly with Mustangs. I am a forum admin on Mustang forum. I have owned a 98 GT and I currently have supercharged/intercooled 01 GT pushing about 430-440 RWHP. I live in area where snow is commonplace in the winter, so I only get to drive the Mustang from Spring through Fall.
My current DD is a modified 2006 Mazdaspeed6 pushing about 290-300 WHP. So, I am also familiar with the direct injected turbo cars. So, as it comes time to replace my DD, I am looking for a fun car, that can be driven through the elements. I am interested in the ST, but FWD does concern me a bit. I put snow tires on my AWD Mazdaspeed6 and I can just go about through anything. I would put snow tires on the ST, but I am concerned that I may be taking a step back from AWD. I'd like to to get some input from those who drive their ST in the snow as to how it handles. Where I live we get lake effect snow and can really get dumped on in short period of time. Thanks in advance for you input. Below are pics of my cars for anyone that cares.
