More like 25 mph.

Honestly that's about as bad as it will get in NYC. I don't go to VT for any reason so I guess it don't matter.

Point is for a RWD car with no LSD it does quite well.

Fwiw, my car climbed a 30+ degree incline from a dead stop in packed snow with very little fuss. Next time it snows like this ill make a video.

These things perform great in dry weather too.
