correct me if i'm wrong, but wouldn't more torque make it HARDER to get more grip, especially in snow? Because torque is what makes you quick off the line and lets you lite up the tires at will, no?
maybe the sport mode stays in a lower gear longer giving you more control in the snow? i've always been told that stick is better in the snow because you can keep the car in a low gear to keep the car from getting away from you. so maybe the sport is more like stick in that it doesn't automatically shift at 3 or so thousand rpm's?
i was never a big fan of auto's so i never took it upon myself to learn all about them, so sry if i'm wrong.
