In the northeast road temps were down to the mid 20's yesterday afternoon and I was traveling on Rt22 coming out of New Jersey into Pa and the section of road has some nice bends in it which I usually enjoy at speed traffic permitting. This time trying to accelerate out of the turn I lost traction at about 6o mph without excessive throttle, it started to come around and the nannies caught it. The point is be aware how temps can change your cars traction and handling, the soft compound tires really suck when its cold out. I was always aware of it but it still almost caused a wreck.:eek:h:
