Bad Habit was a monster truck driven by Joe Sylvester out of Youngstown, Ohio from 2006-2014. In that span, he became one of the most successful monster truck drivers, setting records and winning championships. After 2014, Joe stepped away from monster trucks to focus on CORR racing full time. Then the Bad Habit chassis from 2009 was sold and was turned into Quad Chaos.
