Bad Dog in Cali

Mendocino Gold TSD tomorrow, ten hours’ drive from Portland. Had to stop for ice cream.
Was up late last night replacing sensor magnets on the left front halfshaft. Precision!
With the turbo, there’s plenty of power for the Siskiyous passes.

Rally Wheels

For the wet and rough roads of Targa Newfoundland, 18″ low-profile tires are not the ticket. Something with a bit more sidewall is called for; and to mount the big skins, some rugged Braid wheels.

Despite┬áthe additional strength of the FullRace RallyX wheels, they’re each more than 10 pounds lighter than the OEM stuff – taking that much unsprung weight off each corner.
