However, I didn't want to give the snow plows time to kill the snow as they are pretty quick out here. So this was done with about 2.5-3" of snow on the ground.

The disclaimer is that there are mobs of golfmk6 members just waiting for me to fuck up my R (ahem...Vancity2Constantinople) so I was extra easy on her. Plus I'm no drift king and this was my first crack at it with the ESC defeat on my R. So even though a ton of you are probably MUCH better at it than me, I wanted my R to live another day

Without further ado ladies and gents, I present to you my Golf R in storm Nemo!



Note: I stopped abruptly at the end because I got the ESC fault code, which apparently is no big deal and has happened to others.
