Jaguar X-type ice racing

When I was thinking about buying a X-type I could not find any videos showing how a X-type handles on ice. I only found videos showing parking lot drifting. That's why I now posted this video. The car works quite well on ice but I think it needs limited slip diffs in front and rear. I think the center diff works good enough. The car would also be better with a quicker steering ratio. But overall I am happy with my X-type. This is a totally unmodified X-type with the 2.5 V6 and automatic transmission. I wanted a manual but couldn't find one. Normal studded winter tires were used. Now I'm looking forward to testing the car on a faster ice track.
