outahere Posted December 25, 2008 Share Posted December 25, 2008 So I am goofing around on some deserted, snow covered roads today, in my '05 wagon (stock suspension, Bkizzak LM25 tires). I'm playing with the throttle and kicking out the rear end, making tight U turns with the throttle, etc. The Legacy is more "tail happy" than one would expect, given the 50:50 torque split. On one of these runs I am going around 20-25mph, I kick out the rear end with some throttle application after a right turn, and the rear end starts oscillating left to right to left, like a pendulum, and it ends when I stuff the front end into a snow bank:redface: No harm done, since it was a low speed collision with soft snow. My question is, how do you stop this oscillation of the rear end, when on snow or ice? I know how to prevent it (drive slower, less throttle:lol:), but once it starts, how do you stop it?
