Self Control Issues!!

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!!

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
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?

uuuhhhhh, no. Your weirding me out Tony. :eek2:
