Looks like fun, but my Camaro is not for that purpose. If I wanted that I would’ve bought a sled instead. I have a landcruiser for the snow, rain and off road fun.

I'd rather have a RWD with winter tires over a FWD with winter tires any day.

Also, as far as being harmful, snow is no different than rain, or humidity in the air....it is the salt that becomes the problem.
i was thinking the same exact thing. Alot of quick clips and editing. The troubles most ppl would encounter with snow aren't tested here in this video. I myself, from Missouri, have had quite a few snow and ice days. I took my camaro out once in the snow/ice on a 10% grade hill. I came down the hill fine! LOL getting up the next hill was the problem. Got about 100 yards and quickly got stuck. After 30 minutes of spinning and rocking it miraculously came off the curb it had rolled back into and i let gravity help me do a reverse about face and go back home. But getting back up the hill i came down caused my car to spin again. There was so much torque on my back end. Any amount of gas i gave it just spun me out.I finally figured out that all i needed to do was just let off the brake the idle was enough horsepower to crawl me up the hill at 1 mile an hour. 100 yards at 1 mile an hour....never again.

You have to get the snow tires and maybe thinner rims because with my 20's rs rims i cant get my camaro to move even on 2 inch snow. I'm serious one day I was running late to work and when I stepped outside I noticed it had snowed 2 inches. My second car the Nissan altima was covered with snow and wasn't warmed up and my camaro which I park under a roof was totally clean. I figured I had to take the Maro because the to dig out the Altima and warm it up I would be too late for work. I jumped in the totally clean snow free camaro and just like everyone told me I couldn't even get down the street. I tried using low rpm and it still wasn't working I had NO traction on flat ground, so it was that moment I decided snow driving was not for my Camaro. I was late for work that day but I didn't crash my camaro.

i guess I don't know much about these tires. I didn't know there was much of a difference with the RS rims. You mean the RS's are wider?

I would'nt call that snow! driving in a strait line, no tree's, curbs, other cars, ice under it...put it on a real street with ice, thick packed snow that will snap an airdam off in seconds, moguls of hard packed snow to toss the car around like a salad spinner, and starting and stopping in city traffic...that would be "Camaro doesn;t handle in snow?" This is just any car driving in 2 inches of powder

That looked like fun, It reminds me of the time My son and I took our 86 Fiero out to an empty parking lot after a snow and did donuts, we had traffic stopping on the road that paralleled the parking lot... That was so much fun!.

I am dying to drive mine, which has been in storage for 2 months - but I won't subject it to the snow and salt like that.

To top it off, all of this was done using 19'' all-season tires.



simply stunning
Yeah, but who drives Camaros with "All-Season" tires?" Let's be real about this.

Driving in the winter on the highways is a LOT different than that video, you can drive that way with bald tires on ice and snow out in the middle of a field with a little speed, wait until you are on a road with guard rails, semi trucks and turns and intersections. LOL I drove for almost 40 years in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, even drove down Kelly Mtn in Cape Breton in the middle of a storm, but not by choice.

After saying this, a camaro with all season tires can probably be driven with ease at reasonable speed and a driver with at least half a brain on snow and ice, but next time you are driving in a storm or shortly after a storm, check out who is laying upside down with all four wheels spinning... you got it the 4x4's
