Re: TORSEN CENTER - OPEN FRONT!!
I think that this is the key to sloving Boris' tricks. What does a fully
equipped type 44 car weigh in the US of A? I seem to recall the weights are
significant... Those boat anchor bumpers will not aid you in this depīt
until you visit the woods.
My A4 might seem like a light weight - no A/C, no rear p/w, no sunroof, no
leather, etc. Let's get clopser to solving this by getting some true
weights and weight distributions with driver and 1/2 tank of fuel...
