Put me in the passenger seat, and I'm white knuckled and my ass is trying to take a bite out of the seat as soon as we leave the entrance hill.

My wife used to terrify me when she drove the RZR, I could only handle it for a few minutes at a time. A few weeks ago, I sat shotgun in my buddies commander for a few laps...and I thought I was going to have a heart attack. Riding shotgun just isn't something I'm comfortable with (especially at the dunes)...but maybe I'm just a control freak.



"Mr. INTENSE" must be the same way...I see him driving like a maniac out there more so than anybody else, it made me laugh to see him screaming at every little jump or wheelie.
I agree 100%....i can't ride passenger....i have almost seriously hurt myself trying to get out of a rig when it was not at all safe because i was basically having a panic attack. I just can't do it....put me behind the wheel and i'm fine but i cannot ride passenger

I hate riding shotgun.

Can't barely do it at all, even on the roads.

I was having a blast, my wife was ok with it but she likes me to take it easy when she is in the car. The part that jarred him so bad was the bootom of the last hill before exit, has a nasty ridge that will bite you at high speed.
As far as how fast it is, it is a stock L33 5.3 with a different cam and the supercharger, makes somewhere between 500-550 hp in a car that weighs 2760# with nobody in it. It is fun and plenty fast but far from the fastest one out there.
If any of you guys want to check it out feel free to approach me anytime, I will be more than happy to talk to you. You never know, you may just end up in the passenger seat

I believe I saw you out there on Sunday. I will attest to the crazy fast comments. I would probably pee myself in excitement for even a ride in one of those. I don't believe I heard the super on yours but was there a guy with a 4 banger and a turbo?

Brent who? Not sure who you are talking about, maybe because I have bumped my head a few to many times

Sounds like it's going to be cold, but we are going up to have a little fun (hopefully).
