I've done very similar things but not so fast. When it is slick out I drive very slow.
Most car now are front drive and they work great in snow but on ice I feel they are worse than rear drive.
One of the worst cars I had on glare ice was my wonderful 88 rx7 turbo. It had wide tires with top of the line performance tires meant for superior traction on dry and wet roads buton ice not so god. Add to that was that the Rx7 with that rotary engine had the light engine set back more from the front giving the care almost 50-50 front-rear weight distribution which on ice made it seem I was driving on with a tobagon.
Luckily in Dodge they years I had them(I had two), the winters were rather free of ice.
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
