GT Book of Revelations.... Chapter 1

So, I have well document some of my displeasure at the 'crashy' ride quality of my GT, even detailed a comical episode with the Rozzers !. But last Saturday I stumbled upon a minor revelation no less.

I was a tad concerned that GT was pulling left very slightly so took it for a tracking and wheel balance check. The nice chap at the garage... and no... not 'Quick Sh$t'... informed me that my tracking was way out. I took that with a pinch of salt but when I drove the car home.. Wow.. crashyness was gone... yes the ride is still a bit hard but gone is the harsh 'crash bang' that I was experiencing over the slightest bump. It's now a very bearable drive

So now begs the question.... how would a simple tracking adjustment make such a difference to the ride ?.

Hmmmm, may have to have mine checked now.

My tyre pressures were way down when I bought it and that didn't help. The previous owner was stickler for how it looked but the tyres were way off so I'm now checking everything else.

Still the best thing since baked goods came pre-cut though!
