    Depends what your definition of 'ass' is, to paraphrase Bill Clinton

    Those all used to be based here. It wasn’t hard to see them in ‘action.’ :photog

    My Mom had a Toyota that had traction control on it. Not saying it's the same as your case, but fuck traction control. Went to pull out on the highway one day and a back tire chirped a bit on some loose gravel. Computer cut power for the traction control and it didn't have enough ass to accelerate. Almost got rear-ended. Had to pull over on the shoulder to let traffic pass while the truck got it's shit together.

    Dumbest "feature" ever.

    Oh. Another day while driving 45mph on a very slight bumpy road the TC kicked in again, this time sending power to different wheels, I think. Anyway, it started jerking the truck all over the place. My Dad was driving and is a pretty strong guy. 6'3"-240lbs. He had to muscle the steering wheel so hard to keep from running in to oncoming traffic that he ripped the leather wrapping off.

    Traded it in days later.

    Fuck traction control.

    Probably pulled over for non DOT turn signals. :dunno

    I remember first time i borrowed my moms R1200GS. I went to take off from the side of a road. I stalled the bike with how hard the TC cut in on me. :lol3 The TC was great though for holding perfect wheelies with the front wheel a couple inches off the ground though. So there's that. :ricky

    Without TC, and before I added the topper to my truck, it would smoke 2, or all four, on dry pavement for as long as you wanted to make smoke. :rofl :jack

    2:30 hours....... that's like 7 or 8 Diet Dr. Perpers... So, yeah, first few laps would be slower. Could dump some ice after the first few DDPs were gone.
