RE: question on 300se
Put a couple of bags of cat litter in both of the quarter panel pockets of the trunk in your car.
The W126 is fairly well distributed weight wise, and is relatively easy to control in a slide. However, it is RWD. Putting weight in the back helps gain much needed traction and increases track via the independently strung rear laying out.
The problem with these cars is getting them moving. It is not to difficult to turn, stop(love ABS), and drive with caution. They can get stuck in .5 inch of slush, however, if you have poor tread.
Get grippy all-season tires and put weight in the back. You shouldn't have any problems.
