Too soon?  Still a rookie on the forum...

Tits is not a man to joke with! He will find you and slap you.......


Anyway....

When storing a vehicle for more than a few weeks, it is best to drive the vehicle until it is thoroughly warmed up and then immediately put it up on "blocks" after arriving at the storage location. Doing this takes the load off of the tires completely.

What to use as "blocks" is the question..........

The batwings came back in with a reset.  Hold the button on ignition process, and well it's winter so no commentary on them going up if it gets too hot, but the switch brings them out on demand, so just assume it all works.

It's showing all the symptoms of not been driven in a while (fouled plugs, etc).  It runs really well with a change of plugs, compression test and PPI came back above and beyond expectations.  Probably revert some of the LP640 updates back (rear lights and tail pipe), but keep the brakes on there.  I'm a big fan of the original styling, rings more Lambo to me. 

Love the colour, it was a good buy by all accounts and a keeper.

I store mine on a few layers of carpet, and then drive it around the block or to one of my sons 50 billion birthday parties he "needs" to go to before then putting in back on its carpet.

taking the weight of it is interesting
