Wouldn\'t the snow kicked up block the rad? And the temperature difference from a hot engine and cold environment make all the plastics and hoses brittle/expand and contract and cause leaks?

It might do, but it i think it was publicity shoot? not sure but a 26b in the snow! brilliant. one thing is for sure it would produce more power in the cold air so long as he wasnt at high altitude.

Bit disappointing!
 
I went to Sweden this year, and a guy in and E30 325 with spikes was doing a much better job! haha

think i should have turned the volume up when watching the video. The videos of him in his 26b are awesome though, one of them against asupra and he is driving like a kid, big burnouts etc, really good
