If the mode switch wasn't behind the steering wheel and hard to find without looking, that would be a good idea.

Here's the same video with the music removed. Honda Fit EV on Ice without music - YouTube

I love racing on ice.

Here's my own video from an Ice rally-x this winter. I was running new Hakkapallita 7 studded tires. I was pretty much the fastest car on the ice in a Ford Focus, front wheel drive, open differential. There was only 1 subaru on studded tires that was on par with me.

In related news...

GCR just awarded Mike a nice prize for submitting his ice-racing Fit to a photo contest: "the strangest place you've charged your EV" ...

Of course, that place was on a frozen lake, and the charging was via 5500 watt portable generator!

Photo Contest: Most Unusual Place To Charge An Electric Car? (WINNER)

Congrats, Mike!
