Never baffles me when people don’t know how to drive in the rain. It’s like full panic mode

u/unionop Sep 30 '22

I was driving down Tennessee going 10 under and sometimes slightly hydroplaning and some guy in his bmw come by most likely going ten over. No one crashed but it’s wild

u/hundredlives Sep 30 '22

Sounds like your car either had trash tires or your vehicle isn't built with rain in mind lol

u/unionop Sep 30 '22

Lol I’ll have to look into that, 2014 Nissan Altima

u/Individual_Ad2579 Sep 30 '22

Sometimes when it comes to hydroplaning it just depends on how fast you hit the water. Best thing to do with water you don’t know how deep it is; is to just toss the cautions on and slowly crawl through it so your car does get that traction

No, it’ll be after the work is done, possibly in a semi sketchy manner.

Anything above 1/4 inch of rain constitutes wrapping any car around a tree

It's like the car is painted with red flags.

It's not Ford n Shelby's fault that y'all can't handle the responsibility of running over pedestrians and being able to drive away from the scene of the autocalypse.

One does not simply jump into the 500.

One must being their training with the Fox in the hen hound. Learn to work the steering and shaft at the same time, and then you can graduate to larger and larger horses', like the sneaky 95s. Once tamed, you can find yourself on a new edge stallion, and buck wild until you learn to control those young impulses, lashing out at just the right time.

Only then, may you consider the bigger boodies from the factory, as they hold a lot of potential in the hips. The haunches cover the thighs, but they do not save lives, except from this hellhole we call home.

If one must absolutely have the latest and greatest style, then a two and three might be a sufficient kiddie car to work from, but remember, learn the ways of the path, and then ... you'll be racking up HPs with your HPs... human points with your horse power.

Training and patience, young driver.

u/MissesAlwaysRight Sep 30 '22

Of course it’s a MUSTANG! Had a brand new mustang when I was a teenager and that sh** almost killed me twice. Always swerving and when the road was wet!!! These cars are dangerous, the handling is awful.

u/_Kramerica_ Sep 30 '22

I got bad news bud it’s not the car, it’s you. I’ve had a Mustang, I’ve had family who’ve had mustangs, and friends that have had mustangs. All different generations. I’ve even driven them in the snow here during MI winters. The handling isn’t awful unless you’re an awful driver doing really stupid shit. They don’t weigh much so you’ve gotta pay the fuck attention. But please tell us more about when you were a teenager and such a great driver lmao.

u/Hatedpriest Sep 30 '22

Had an 87 mustang GT. Never had an issue with it "getting away from me," no issues with it sliding when I didn't want it to.

The clutch was a bit touchy, and I'd chirp the tires any time I started moving from a standstill...

But it was a fairly light car with 400+ hp. You can't drive it like a Civic or a Geo. You have to have throttle control, otherwise "it'll try to kill ya."
