Drove the Ranger a bit more today.....

1 word..... I'll spell it out.

V..I..O..L..E..N..T

Holy freakin crap. When you get a whole foot full of throttle, this this grows fangs and warts and crap!

It a wheel hopping sob too. Dang near shook my fillings out and I'm sure it cleaned about a pound of dirt of it.

Stopping? heh heh, Well It seems to stop ok, but definitely needs new pads on the front.

I definitely need to tame that rear end down!
