It worked. To what degree I can't say yet, but 20 for 20 attempts up the snow covered hill the non-grooved tire broke free first. Unfortunately it was too dark to take video, but I will do some filming this afternoon.
As for the tire cutting I layed out the first few lugs, but just free handed it after that. All in all it took 45 min to an hour from start to finish. The groover handled it well, I only used 1 blade and it didn't seem to cut any different from the first to last cut.
Sounds like it is working out. Not the first time nor probably the last that my ideas have been proven wrong. I have always believed that the day you stop learning you better be ready to pull the dirt over yourself.

There wasn't a ton of snow, but enough to be slippery. As you can see in the video the left tire slips as I start up the hill, applying the left brake transfers power to the grooved tire and I'm able to make it up the hill.

I also added 2 more rows of grooving as the outer lugs also make contact with the ground.
Doing both has been the plan from day 1, I just wanted to demonstrated the effectiveness of grooved vs non-grooved in a head to head test. I plan on grooving the 2nd tire tonight / tomorrow.
