Fun with leaves

Post by PlyFly#14 » Mon Nov 23, 2015 4:34 pm

Thought I'd post an update since it's been a while. Been toying and tinkering and had a blast sliding around on the leaves this weekend. With the tread nearly bare at all 4 corners you really need to get the tires heated up for them to stick at all, and there's a lot of understeer but I attribute that to lack of tread. I'm still in the market for replacement front wheels/tires but regularly swap the rears depending on my mood.

How's everyone else doing?

Not recently, but I think that can be arranged today. Nice crisp cold day, plenty of leaves out on the street, plus I need to run the tank dry for winter. That is unless I add a plow for the driveway.

Hi Zee,
This seemed like it was important enough to deserve its own topic thread, so I started a new one to answer.
