    I like mine especially when there's only a SMALL break in traffic and I HAVE to get on the road :D I hate making people slow down for me, so, she gets some gas and man does she go :D

    Yikes. I don't think I'd ever redline a V6. I redline my honda's all the time, lil 4 bangers can take it... I don't know about bigger motors though. That's alot of metal moving really fast. I guess having an automatic keeps me from ever redlining it.

    The rev limiters are set pretty low. Piston speed is well in the good range, even at 5500 rpm.

    I would use 4hi for that.

    I don't think you should be drifting a truck. But you do it by spinning the tires and turning. You have to use controled slippage, and control everything with the gas pedal.

    Definitely glad to hear this! Great peace of mind to know it f**king goes when you need it.

    Off topic though, can it pull a lane change at 75-80 and then keep going with slight powersliding?
    I got a friend who's dad has an 07 MDX with the Sport package and SH-AWD and that shit is raw! Best crossover by far on the market.

    STIs are great...until the driver gets stuck in 2 inches of dirt. "Don't worry man-I've got all wheel drive" My friends last words-about 5 mins before I tugged him out.

    I had to do a highway run today and was dissapointed that I didn't need to pass anyone. I figured my wife would think I was nuts if I started passing phantom cars . . . LOL :D

    I had to use the power the other night to pass this dipshit in front of me. He merged into my lane from the right and then started to slow down. So I went to the left lane to pass and he accelerated and he moved in front of me again. This asshole kept doing the same thing 3 times so I gunned it and past him and did the same to him. 11pm on my way home from my 2nd job, almost no traffic and this f@#tard had to mess with me.
    I love the power of this truck. Even though he was driving a minivan, I could hear him trying to accelerate when I was passing him.
