mine seems to just turn them both off with a single hit of the button.

like on the way home its a damn rain/wind storm. stability assist (pic of car doing burnout) is flashing on the info screen hard, with it just cycling the engine on/off. but if i click it off, its sideways burnouts as long as you want with just MPH climbing on the info screen. now if i could leave the stability on and the traction off, that would probably be best? but doesnt seem to be option.

btw. this car drives awesome in the rain. you really need to actively be an asshole for the car to loose traction. (and i am usually actively an asshole btw) seems pretty easy to drive around like a standard 4dr grocery getter.

also, i have stopped at several places and had people harass me, think i was in some guys snapchat. talked to some people. etc. i go into the grocery store the other day, grab a cart,  older gent says "that you making all that noise" LOL. "yes it was".... "i didnt know cars could still sound like that"  :noel: :Jew:

had an hour yesterday. cut that stuck bolt off and put the exhaust on. the long tube barely fit in there with the valve cover off.

In my wife's trailblazer if I press and hold the traction control button for like 5 or 8 seconds it turns off the stabiltrac and the traction control.

i worked on it yesterday. almost done. been kinda a pita but not too bad i guess. just kinda lame having to take so much shit off to time the motor.

had to take off the motor mount belt tensioner and front timing cover. i thought i had it timed right without taking off the cover and making sure on the crank sprocket... but its a good thing i did because it was a tooth off LOL....

i might try and finish it today. the only thing left thats a bitch is one of the exhaust bolts is stuck on around the resonator behind the cat. i got one off with wd40 and an impact, but the other one just wasted the nut so i'm just going to cut/grind it off.

this is my when i realized i had to take the cam sprocket off to get at that one fucked up retarded tiny headbolt.

did i mention that i LOVE this car. as much as i want to modify her even more, i dont want to fuck with something so good (dont want to call her perfect though). so really the plan is maintenance/replacing things that bother me.

so one of the things i said i wanted to do with this car was drive her. take road trips. etc. well i have done one.

put some miles on her. this was my road trip. lots of freeway. some slower highway, some around the town putting around. keeps dropping as i do more of my commute lol. at like 17 or so now. lol.. was up into 23-24 range with solid freeway driving if i remember right. remember she is like 4k-lbs 3.27 gears, 6.0L with a healthy cam and convertor. she does need a couple bushings in the rear, and tires on the front.

something i have wanted to do is go to the ocean. you might be saying 'dude are you are in seattle' well that just the puget sound, and i have been all over that, but never out to the coast. i wanted to stand on the beach and look out into thousands of miles of nothingness...
here are some random pics from the ocean. was on the Oregon coast. dont remember where, think just north of California. phone was being a bitch, and was just enjoying the views and drive, etc.

oh yeah, dont think i posted this. but its a 2008 and it doesnt have bluetooth. bought this off amazon for like 20bucks. and i love it. works great. and bonus nitrous and 'burnout' switches porn.

traction control fuckin hates me and the rainly roads lol. need to figure out how to tune that shit to numb it out or something so it doesnt just kill 100% power then drop it instantly back in. if its not wet roads, shit is tuned off.  8)
