when you turn on your head lights pull on the end of the handle and that will turn your fog lights on, esp is eletronic stability program basicaly it keep the nitro from slipping around in the snow,mud and stuff like that, I have another post around here about the esp. I turn it off in the snow to have some fun. As far as gas I burn 86. Dont use anything higher the motoer is not designed to burn anything else.

Fog/ESP/Octane

As mentioned above....on the left hand lever controlling the lights ... pull the end of the knob out and that will flip on the fogs.:SHOCKED:

ESP turn it off when your starting off in snow or ice and going into four wheel drive :Racing:

Fuel..... I use 87 octane rating. No need to go higher.:beerchug:

Enjoy your Nitro.

ESP is also used to minimize body roll when cornering. Like Nitroman said, turn it off & floor it when you want to break the back end loose. I have about 500 miles on the Nitro in the snow in 4wd & I pretty much leave the ESP alone otherwise.
Going in & out of 4wd doesn't seem to be effected by the ESP at all. If I have the ESP off & the 4wd on, & gas it too much from a standing start in the snow, the truck will spin several tires. With the ESP & 4wd on, the truck seems to lug a bit till the tires can grip, then goes forward. It's amazing how quick the thing is off the line in the snow.

Airjunky, are you saying it's always best to turn off the ESP when driving in the snow? I'm asking because it's going to snow here shortly!
