My fiance & I were coming back from a friend's house Saturday night & I took a sharp turn at about 40 mph, which turned out to be a bit too fast. Well, without the traction control on, the car started sashaying back & forth down the road; felt just like driving an older rear-wheel drive. Thankfully, I have plenty of experience with this & I was able to regain control without spinning the car. I thought it was pretty cool but my fiance wasn't too happy. At any rate, that's the second time I've gotten the back-end going side-to-side. Even though the 4.6L isn't a big motor, there's plenty of power to shake the car loose.

Both times the rear-end has broke free were very abrupt. However, because I was turning & had my foot on the gas, it's not totally unexpected. Like I said, it just reminds me of driving some of my older cars. I'd bet even money, the Bullitt's no better in the snow than my 85 GT. That thing is sooooo loose in the rear. But as long as you don't oversteer or hammer the brakes, you can usually pull out of those kinds of shimmy's.
