i've been trying to figure out the physics of driving the slingshot in the snow and rain. It tends to hydroplane quite easily. I believe the primary reason it does so is because the single driving wheel is in the center of the road where there is typically water or snow gathering. You have to be especially careful as a result. Snow tires helps a great deal. I have been thoroughly enjoying this vehicle from the day I got it two days ago. I took a ride around the block with my poodle Susie.
