|Out & About!|
Rally Design got the brake pads & master cylinder to me on Friday & I fitted the new master on Saturday morning - hideous job, but done now & all finished except for a little more bleeding. The brakes will now lock the wheels which is kind of re-assuring. I took the car out on Saturday PM & did about 30 trouble free miles, but the tyres really are rubbish. The Fury had what I called "carefee handling", you had to REALLY abuse it to make it lose traction & on a dry road you cold more or less dump the clutch & slam through the gears & the car would just go. The Stylus has the same engine, but a taller first gear & a taller diff AND a limited slip differential, so the tyres must be the reason it'll spin up the wheels at the slightest provocation. It's like driving a '60s American muscle car.
Anyway, I was very careful & light-footed, the new wheels & tyres should be here tomorrow.
This afternoon the depression cleared - around 3:15 - I felt it lift. Weird I know.
So I just need those wheels tomorrow.
