Thanks for the thumbs up everyone. I really had no idea how to post that. It was both funny and fun.

Wheel hop. I've had that since I bought it. Old tires, new tires, 65 psi, 80 psi. Really noticeable in snow or sand. So bad that I have to idle it or the hop will begin. Violent axle wrap if I did not know better, but unloaded and with only barely touching the throttle it will do it. (in snow or sand that is, not normal driving)

Axle wrap (that I remember) is normally only when you hit it with some juice. Not the case here. I just chalked it up to duallies behaving badly.

I'd love to be able to nail it from a stop and not feel like I was detroying my axle as I crossed the intersections. God forbid I hit a bump during the first 3-400 feet. Slam! Bam!... Damn! lol.
