Why not, Bernie? You see--it's a refinement of the Benz philosophy.
We call it DFIIIABE: "Don't Fix It if it Ain't Broke Enough".
I'm sure Mike is careful to check the tower brace condition every 
time he inspects his brake rotors to see how many microns of 
thickness are left (before the the cooling ducts begin to show). 
Right, Mike? ;-)
