Hey @subquark , appears there’s no issue driving with your Speed’s on 😛🤪😜
Yeah, but what's the point of wearing a Speedo if you can't get it up, err, I mean do a wheelie?

I like that they call out a wheelie. I think my popo would give me a commendation if Soupie popped a wheelie on the way to the dump!

You may want to find a Target store. Showed on the news they are selling bikinis with wide straps and penis pockets. The new Speedos :LOL:

With all the electronic controls in them you can't burn the tires off these like older vehicles. Just get enough to make you smile.
Well with that little POS rental, I didn't smile. I just thought "go, dammit go!"

Yes! Isn't it great? I'm not condoning driving like an idiot but accelerating rapidly every now and again is fun. The first week I had mine I floored it on an on ramp, doing about 25 or 30 mph and the traction control light blinked at me a couple of times. And it was bone dry pavement. I can count on one hand how many times I've had wide open throttle. It's just not necessary. Just partial throttle in sport mode is more than plenty in almost any circumstance.
Be careful out there.

Most of the time I drive like the grandpa that I am. I hadn't had the truck very long when I went over to my bud's house. Coming home the entrance ramp from his town onto the state highway is very short so no matter what you're driving you have to give it the boot. I floored it and when the boost got spooled up at about 35 mph the back tires broke loose. I was like, "Oooh sh!t, that was fun!" Been about 30 years since I owned a vehicle that could spin the tires.
