Default Re: Living with bald tyres? Don't!

finally got new aceleres and got my suspension fixed too. It's like i have a new car now
But i do miss the earlier knife edge ride (where you could feel every stone on the road) and the suicidal braking and cornering - I scared the mech who came with me for the TD today. I was testing out the suspension(had not changed the tyres yet) , and accelerated too hard into a turn and came away with too much wheelspin while turning. I was able to regain control and thankfully bring it back under control. The mech had not worn his seatbelt and was clinging on for dear life.

I just grinned and said, "see, thats the problem"
