Icy winter shifting (Posted on 2011-08-24) Difficulty: 3 of 5
There is only one 6-digit number enabling this beautiful shifting of the partial products:

mmmmmWINTER 
       *ICY
mmmmmWINTER
mmmmRWINTE
mmmERWINT  
mmmTHERWWWR
What digit is not used in the multiplication above?

Hint : The road being slippery, don't use your own vehicle in the competition:
96075 45979 17$23 07869 546

     230769
    x    341
    ---------

  923076
692307
-----------
78692229

Thus the digit not used is 5.
setting 5=a and $=o the cipher at the end becomes:
Rent a car, try to win the race.
