    So if you park it up and come back after it's been raining, does it swell up into a DS or what?!

    A burn out with those tyres would be a disaster.

    It was used a lot as a material in the old days in cars. Though I'd say he'd be lucky to get it above 20mph considering the weight.

    Rejoice in the awareness of feeling stupid, for that’s how you end up learning new things. If you’re not aware you’re stupid, you probably are.
