    I'll buy those explanations. Tuners need to have a separate vocabulary from rodders.

    I agree the stance and wheel tire combo make or break...

  18. Yes you're exactly right.
    But that doesn't mean anything. Gay used to mean "happy" too and there ain't anything you can do about that either.

    Stance is a centuries old word that's derived from French, a place to stand. People "stand" and they stand in different ways -There's a fencing stance, a golfers stance, a batters stance, martial arts stance, a prostitutes stance blah blah blah. Common usage of "stand" can be : "where do you stand on this issue? " and a perfectly understandable answer is "My stance is this,,, ".

    How that word "stance" got onto cars is part of the evolution of language, it's dynamic and ever changing. All you need is some TV talking idiot who's viewed by the masses to use a word differently and if it makes a little sense then it's likely to be assimilated.

    There you go - breath easy because life is short and remember that some people have real problems they deal with.

    Here's one that gets me and when it happens I give the diatribe. The substitution of "no thank you" with "I'm good",,,,
    would you like like some coffee?
    I'm good
    Excuse me? Would you like some coffee (or whatever help, beer, doughnut, more to eat, etc)
    I'm good
    I didn't ask you wether you were a bad person or a good person,, nor did I ask you again a second time how you were doing today because I did pay attention the first time.. I offered you some fucking coffee(or what ever) and if you don't want any, the proper response is "no, thank you"

    Yep. "Stance" is just one of the many things that old codgers like me get our feathers ruffled over... like so many other phrases that have come and gone, and some that just won't go away!

    Things have changed for sure. In first grade I got thrown into a head lock by Mrs. Black and dragged to the sink in the back of the class where she very forcefully washed my mouth out with soap and HOT water for saying "dang it". I didn't really understand what I did wrong, I knew a lot of words worse than that and thought I was on my best behavior. I decided it was safest just no to say much around her. I didn't say anything when I got home either. :) That old Texas woman had a stance like a Model R John Deere! :eek: There, back on topic. :D
