Yup. Then you'll find the pressures are wrong. Then the shocks ...
Then, of course, you'll get it onto a "western" (as distinct from "desert")
road. Then you'll get it aligned properly ...
And then, one day, you'll get back into a normal car. And you'll wonder how on
earth people drive them about without dying of fright on every bend.
