Was Surprised how well the Challenger handled on icy roads.
I work just north of Dallas. I went into work Thursday night and got off at 9:00am Friday morning.
Lots of ice on the roads and bridges and I live 50 miles away. Was going to get a hotel but the power was out in the area.
I decided to drive home. Used the auto stick to change and hold the gears. Did not have any issues with the car. Was very sure footed and did not slid around on the roads. I felt very safe driving the car home.
Only problem was getting the ice off around the door and window so that the window would drop down from the rubber molding.

good deal...I keep a 3/4 tank of fuel, some extra weight in the trunk, and slow down on the slush/ice and have had zero issues with driving.

To help with the windows

On the upper molding that the window slides up under I sprayed some silicone lube.

For the lower I just keep an old id card that I run from the back of the door to the front in between the glass and the seal to break up the ice when it's stuck.
