Cody...

Either you can shift and drive or you can't. I've never driven Iowamax..but give me 30 minutes behind the wheel and I'd be launching it like it should be done.

Sorry Elmo.. you said you were going to run me in Ohio, and Ryan. You didn't make it and I hear you had an issue shifting on a mere ride around the block.

Please post your results tomorrow. From there we'll decide if it'* time to respect the Maxima or send the potty time Elmo to ya.

maybe Cody was mistaken and doesn't know how a shift should feel?

Yeah Bill you may have a point. When my dad shifts aggressively, it didn't feel like Elmo'*. I just felt a "bang" (for a lack of better term and sound, forgive me) and I assumed that it was a messed up shift and now that Elmo said it just barked the tires, that could be where I assumed he messed up. I don't know, I guess it'* one of those thing where you need to be hearing.
