I also had a 72 Dodge Coronet Wagon with posi and studded snows that wouldn't get stuck ANYWHERE in the winter. (with no added weight in the rear)
I honestly think it has more to do with the driver than the vehicle.

Sorry O.P.! Back to your topic.
I wonder what cage drivers (yes even Subarus) think when I ride up that steep slippery ice covered hill and pass them with my V-strom
