About to sell my truck, somone talk me out of it?

Ok so I kind of went out and bought my truck spur of the moment. I found one of the last new QC's it was the color I wanted and I got what I thought at the time was a great deal 12k off msrp 0% for 72months. Now here it is 6 months in to owning the truck and it is really starting to piss me off. I have roughly 11k miles on the truck, the front tires are cupping like crazy, the turning radius of the truck is about the same as a school bus and the thing is an absolute turd. I bought the truck because I thought it would be just a blast to drive, I figured at truck with 500hp would pretty much blow the tires away and atleast be fun from stop light to stop light, however this thing won't even think about breaking the tires loose ever, and its slower than pretty much any diesel out there with a programer.

Is there somthing I am missing here? is my truck just slower than the rest of them? I see all the time people saying they are running low 13's high 12's in basicly stock trucks. My srt8 ran a 13.2 and it puts 20+ cars on my truck in a race. There has to be some hope I would think?

I have been trying to hold out for the diablo, hoping that maybe a tune would be the switch that made the truck go from boring to blast but it seems it keeps getting delayed over and over. I am starting to think it is time to just take the 10k hit in the shorts and move on.

Somone help me out here!!

Youn have to get a flash and take away the factory restrictions (torque management) that was put there to save the transmission. You will get other benifits as well

Rotate and balance your tires every 5000 miles, and have the alignment at least checked, this will take care of your cupping.

well I just traded in my truck and I have no regrets, but I do think that before you trade it in you should spend the money to flash it and get rid of the cats. You should have did some reasearch before you bought it because every one knows that QC are slow in stock form,,,, and why worry about the tires , Perrellies are shit anyway. Or trade it in on a RC and "master" the stick and you will be beating just about anything that tries to run you on the street.

I say give youre truck a chance to prove to you its a bad ass machine,,it just needs a little jump
