I have an on-going diasgreement and I don't wish to temper my own oppinion into this thread so I will ask the question in an open-ended way...

If you have a car going at some speed (say 55 MPH) and the car starts to hydroplane, does the car speed up, remain essentialy the same speed, or slow down?

In words, how would you prove your point?

I should add that we are making some assumptions that this is on a flat level surface and that the only change was the surface of the road from blacktop to a layer of water that caused the hydroplaning to occur.
