My old tires were virtually gone in the rear. I was amazed how even the wear was considering most of it was autocross or track wear. The fronts had more miles left but that tire was not available so my only choice was a new set of 4.

It looks like you got your money out of that set.

Phfffftttt

99 is nice. That is 14 degrees cooler than last week here. It is still cool here today. That funny water stuff that fell from the sky last night brought cooler temps.

They really were showing video on TV of that stuff falling from the sky. It was amazing.

yeah, i did. they were torn up from autocrossing and simply being on my car with me driving. i drive that 951 like it is stolen....

edit: i forgot to mention that the A-arms were shot and i drove with those fronts like that for a long time. i am sure that is part of why they are so trashed. also, the camber is set for autocross, so the outsides where really fast.

They never do. I think we just become immune


Figured out where I'm exploring this year (roughly traced it in dark green on this map)



I'm guesstimating somewhere between 5-6000 km.

Yeah, should be fun. We'll be on the move most days and doing somewhere between 50 and 300km per day. Some days may be a bit longer, and each week we'll give ourselves a couple of days rest. Mostly bush (free) camping.

If the pie smells good, usually means it'll taste good I make up recipes all the time, Problem is I never write anything down. Sometimes I'll make something that is really really good, and the next time I try to do it again it turns out just okay instead.

I agree. Until college it sucked, but college is awesome! And I do see way more girls here than I ever would in my free time away from school.
