    But traction control saves all.

    Can't believe how much carnage I saw on the drive home yesterday. Trees on top of houses, trees on top of cars, trees in the middle of the road. Trampolines on top of trees. Overhead signs collapsed. Etc.

    Guessing this guy just hydroplaned in a huge puddle of water? Or he is an idiot driving with the traction control turned off.

    With the size of tires on a Viper hydroplaning happens very easily. First thing I noticed on my car when I went with the fatter tires.

    Weird, I would not have expected that, how big are your tires? I just got a car with much wider tires, I'll have to be mindful about that. I thought it would have much more to do with the quality of the tread pattern and less the width?

    Mine are 335 in the back and 295 in the front. Tread designs have a lot to do with it. The thing with larger tires is the ground pressure is reduced so it's harder to cut through the water on the road. Good tire shops will recommend a skinner winter tire than what the factory one is for the same reason. It allows the tire to cut through the snow better.
