1) I don't quite understand that first sentence, i think you made a typo somewhere... Either way, I think I understand the point you are trying to make...

2) to quote myself:

"I hate driving when it is wet out... I can barely touch the gas pedal from a stop without having my tires spin... Oh well, I guess things could be worse... I could still be driving a honda "

I didn't say it was impossible to drive in the rain. I simply stated that FROM A STOP you can't accelerate hard without the wheels spinning.

I am aware of the technique used by many drivers out there that involves using the gas lightly which will enable me to drive safely in the rain. Still, I find it much more enjoyable to drive my car when it is dry out and I do not have to use this driving technique.
