Sorry to hear about the car being totaled, but it is more a matter of driving style I think. It is around mid to upper 30s here at night and mid 40s during the day during winter with lots of rain, and I have come nowhere close to the car losing traction with the PS2. But then again I don't mash the throttle at all during these cold times unless it is dry and I am already rolling on the road from second or third gear...
