Bobcat mod!


Got my $$'s worth out of the tires I was commuting on:






New DD tires:








I much prefer how the new Conti ExtremeContact Sport sidewall protects the rim compared to the Conti ExtremeContact DW


AutoX Prep:

Visited a friend who'd offered to help with an alignment.

Before:
  • Front:
    • ~7/16" toe out
    • between -3.3 and -4 camber
  • Rear:
    • ~5/16" toe in
    • between -3 and -3.7 camber

Tire wear, it's a mystery!

After:
  • Front:
    • ~1/16" toe out
    • -3.5 camber
  • Rear:
    • ~1/4" toe in
    • -3.5 camber

Let's see how that drives. And if I miss my stupid^H^H^H^H^H^H extreme level of front toe-out I can always do that with toe plates without affecting the caster/camber.
