When my car is stuck in the snow and doesnt seem to get traction only one wheel spins and not the other and its front wheel drive wouldnt both spin?

No, even a 4x4 will have only 1 wheel that will spin on each axle in this instance. It's called a floating differential. For stock vehicles with non locking differentials like you have, both cannot spin or have full power at the same time. Hard to explain on this, but picture your car making a hard right turn. Both front wheels would be spinning at different speeds because of the turn. The passenger side tire is spinning much slower than the drivers side tire, therefore if both were spinning at the same time, your tires would chirp and skip on the pavement which would eventually ruin your differential. In offroad applications, we WANT the differentials locked and turning at the same time with true 4x4. But in normal everyday vehicles, even standard stock 4x4's, only 1 tire will do the spinning per axle unless it has possitraction or full locked axle. Clear as snow?

Bad vibration from 35-45 mph

ok first check to see if you have a tire separation the tire will have a high spot in it you can jack up the car spin the tire if there is a tire separation you can see it as the tires spins this is the most likey cause...

What means -low track

That means your system detected lowered traction, like a wheel spin or slip..and the system is intervening to assist you...It has the ability to apply brakes and lower throttle...

Back tires sliding in the snow

Snow tires.

All season tires are jacks of all trades but masters of none. You might find that some all season tires are great in snow but then when you drive over wet snow or any ice it's like you're on your rims.

For your car I recommend Yokohama Iceguard. They aren't cheap but then body work and tow trucks aren't either.

I have a camaro and the light of low trac comes on so i want to know what it is

Low traction means the the on-board computer has detected that one or more tires are rotating at a different speed.

If this is occuring randomly, or constantly, you have a problem, that on a camaro (I assume a 2010) should be under warranty.

If this only occurs when you are burning rubber and impressing the ladies in the car next to you, then you are creating the problem by spinning the drive tires at a different speed than the other tires.

If you are driving in ice, snow, rain, etc., it could just be doing its job. Normally, when this occurs, one or more things should occur:
Brakes will be applied to the offending wheels to slow their spin or the engine rpms will be limited until the tires are all spinning at same RPMs.

2001 ford f250 How many time should one tire spin before the limited slip engages?

if one tire is off the ground it will spin as long as it has power , hence "limited slip" , i have seen the clutches wear out , also incorrect fluid will damage clutches

2000 jeep grand cherokee quad drive but onlythe rear wheels turn

usualy you will only have two tires spin at a time even in 4 lo or 4high. those tires are going to be diaginal from each other tipicly. now since your vehcle is equiped with quad drive it may employ a limited slip rear differential to help it along. however this only afects the rear axle. now you can test it by jacking your vehicle up and setting it on jack stands. one for each wheel onder the axle tube on a good solid (concreat or black top) flat surface. then have some one you know and trust to get in the car and put it into drive . now you can actualy see what wheels are spinning or is were the limited slip comes in if you have one rear wheel spinning and the other is sitting still the limited slip will engage and start the other wheel spinning . now this may bang until the other wheel catches up (note that the faster the wheel is spinning the harder it is on your truck)now be very carfull stay away from the wheels tires and all other spinning parts it is a machine it can hurt you badly. but give it a try and it will answer your question. be safe hope this helps
