Diving on rain slick streets is interesting.

When you have a 4" lift and 33" mud terrains that don't grip rain slick roads too well it can be exciting.

Yup! Whenever I'm first to a red light or stop sign I can't help but wind it up and pop the clutch.

Insuring your tires are fully aired up will help a lot. The smaller the tire's footprint, the less likely it is to hydroplane.
