This afternoon proved to be a perfect time to drop into the driver seat, lock down the seat belt as tight as it would go, and put the new Church front end through its paces. Not just in a straight line, but throwing it as hard as I dare into the corners of my local mountain twisty,curvy roads.Mike tagged along, to see if he could catch me shooting out over the side. Not today!! I've never been able to push a car so hard, much less a wagon! into a turn enough to scrub like a go-cart. It was exciting to say the least. The front end seemed to be just fine through it all. I think it could have taken whatever I threw at it, but when I was really rolling into the left handers, gas would pour out the filler(yikes!), and on the deep right handers, the right rear would almost disappear into the rear whellhouse, rubbing away up in the top!! We tried chasing after a Beeemer, but he got scared and pulled off,to let us pass. Darn.. Maybe another afternoon, I'll loiter up there once again, only this time with a "wanna run?" sign...
