Nifty New Shoes

Cars have it so easy. If I get a new pair of shoes I get to spend days limping around in pain while I break them in. My car gets a new set of tyres, and immediately everything feels much, much better.

As I've posted before, I realized last week that new tyres were in my immediate future, since the front tyres were pretty much done for. On Sunday I realized that one of the back tyres had aquired a slow leak over the previous week. Closer examination found a screw in it. This left one tyre in remotely good shape. It must be fate decreeing that it's time for the Azenis I've been drooling over.

So now my car has new shoes. She is happy. I am very happy. For the past several months I have been noticing a vibration in the front end while braking. I figured it meant that the rotors were warped. But driving back from the tyre place I noticed that the vibration is gone. Hmm, now that was an unexpected side effect.

I can't wait for the next autocross. It's a pity that the one next weekend has been cancelled. *sniff*
