Please tell me I'm not the only one here who is having problems controlling their right foot.......At 37 years old I thought I was over this years ago but I can't help but to reach down, shut the VDC off, lock the shifter into first gear, and smoke the living hell out the tires when no one is looking. I never do it when people are around so it's all to satisfy my own addiction. I'm at my worst when I'm getting ready to make a turn because the rear end will slide around nicely and then when it straightens up it's still spinning the piss out of both rear tires. A little slap on the shifter into second gear and then it hooks up and were off at a rather blistering rate. The sound of that engine at 6 grand would make NASCAR drivers and fans proud. It's addictive and I'm an addict BIG TIME!!! Thankfully the tires are just a little over $100 each at the tire rack because I bet I'm ordering a new set for the rears soon....

My name is Dale and I'm a tire burning, slap shifting-aholic!!

Your right, I need help, anyone here a therapist?? :jester:

You're spending too much time in the front seat. Put on some self-help cd's and use the back seat as a shrink's sofa.

Your right there about spending a lot of time in the front seat. 2 weeks ago I drove it from my house in Georgia to Maine (non-stop except for fuel and potty breaks) :). I'll be driving it back to Georgia next Tuesday and truthfully I can't wait to spend another 20 plus hours in it. Wow, I really do need help!! :upsidedow

I swear I've never driven this way in my whole life...geeze, even zooming into the parking lot at work, exhaust rumbling...I figured I'd need a Vette to satisfy any mid-life crisis I might encounter, but Titan fills the bill with plenty of room for Hooter's girls... :jester: :hat: :cheers: just kiddin about the Hooter's girls, GF! :huh: :rolleyes: :jester:

I'm not seeing any right foot control problems here. :smoke:
My GF gets worried when I lock it in 4x4 at a stoplight. Not that I do that often. :rolleyes: Sometimes just to worry her.

I'm keeping you company in that category Jet!!! I got ya by a few years, age-wise, and I KNEW I hadn't outgrown that heavy right foot syndrome. But when I purchased my Armada, I was telling myself, "OK now, this ain't your Mitsu Eclipse that you dart all over town in...this is a 5,000 lbs monster......take it easy. I try to listen to my words of wisdom, but when your son is sitting in the second row barking out orders like "Faster daddy faster!" or "Hey car, get out of my daddy's way!", its just soooo hard not to stomp on the gas :) Yeah thats it, its my sons fault, yeaaah!
DISCLAIMER:
Just so y'all know, I don't drive like an idiot when my boy is in the SUV.................I wait until he's safely inside the house before i do that :upsidedow

maybe we should look into a group discount on tires at the tire rack.... :jester: Or better yet, group therapy..... :coolsmile

I'm just glad I'm not the only one acting like a juvenile behind the wheel.

I have a question for you all...

Do you ever look in the mirror after the light turns green and you are so far in front that you wonder if you ran the red light?

If you can buy Titan tires for $100 each sign me up today. I figured any of the stock 17" 0r 18" would cost between $150 and $200 each? I've got BFG 17's.

Hey BigH,

Which Island, I only saw 1 on Maui last week.

It was nice to hear that the Fronty is the best selling truck in all Hawaii!
