I've been down that hill and I'll bet that SUV slid through four or five stoplights on its way down. There's a printing company at the bottom next to the Hudson River that I had to deliver to. The hill is one steep motherfucker and I recall thinking "No way I'd want to try and drive on this hill in ice and snow."

Going down that grade with a 45,000 pound load of printing paper was bad enough in dry weather. Going down on ice would be inviting suicide, no matter what you were driving.

That was interesting.

That was actually some pretty good driving.
Look how many times they don't oversteer until the end. Could be luck, could be a lot of just hoping to catch enough grip.

Gravity is a constant, so type of car would have very little to do with that

Might have picked that building instead of the River the other poster mentioned.

I always thought these next generation of snow tire chains were an awesome idea:

It looks like a lot of the images from google image search lead back to Mitasnowchains. I think the idea for them originally came from Turkey. I don't know if there is a US importer for them.

I thought that initially too and you're right; hard to tell. I'm looking closely at between :07 and :10. Still looks like Range Rover to me. Doesn't really matter which it is as neither would do well with all-seasons and a steep icy hill.

Whoever was driving threaded that needle pretty well, all things considered.

Having an SUV or 4WD does not allow you to ignore the laws of physics.

I thought it was a "Like a Boss" or "IN" gif in the making.
