My Crew Cab won't spin the tires from a start either. That allows me to STAND on it from a start and not break any laws ie tire chirp. As long as you obey speed limits. I don't think there is a law against acceleration !!!

If that's the case you must have known it was slow from the start so why did you buy it?

Turn off the traction control buuton on your dash!

I still dont think you will be impressed.

I am experiancing the same letdown myself. I really think it is the ECM managing the tourque in first gear. It will be interesting to see what Diablo does with this when they release there new tunner.

That's weird that you didn't get a hard copy of an owner's manual with your truck. My Express also came with the hard copy and cd. The CD isn't really a manual though, it's more like a guide to certain features of your truck. No owner's manual is not that big of a deal. Just go download it from the ram trucks website. I have one on my computer. It's just a PDF file

Press the traction control button on the dash then a squiggly line icon will appear on the instrument cluster. Then stomp on it and and let us know how much rubber you burned. My wimpy little '12 Express with limited slip and 3.55 gears will spin with no problems on dry pavement.
