And why would you prefer a lack of power in snow? That power can get you un-stuck in snow, allows you to accelerate through heavier patches, and is a heck of a lot of fun to do parking-lot snow drifting with!
That car's so slammed, snow to the hood screen isn't that deep

Seriously though, in my experience, high-horsepower cars get squirrelly when you don't want them to. I prefer low-end for snow and ice. And for drifting I like selectable 4WD, with the option of 4Low. That'll get out of some sticky situations
