Liberty shutting down the Southern State Parkway in NY!-Not quite. This is the ugly part of the game that often gets over looked; the struggle. Ty recently ran into a series of bad luck events that had his car sidelined on the highway for hours. One of his airbags which had a slow leak, popped. Before we get into a debate about bags, this one was user error.
He recently replaced his bags with smaller ones to allow him to drive much lower while keeping a nice ride. That means the max lift from the ground position is about 3″ tops where it used to be closer to 4.5″. When you change things, sometimes it takes a while before it becomes embedded in your brain. The PSI reading in the old bags to achieve what he considered a comfortable ride, was pushing these new bags to their limits. Ty went by the pressure that was shown in the gauges, forgetting that new bit of info. He had more than these smaller bags were built for which caused one to pop.
During this time he tried getting a tow but they kept turning him down. He waited hours. You will find out that tow trucks hate towing lowered cars because it takes so much longer and there is a risk of parts breaking off as they drag. His friend Vlad came to help him out with a battery charger and stick around for moral support which he is grateful about. Ty was finally able to get a tow about 4-5 hours later and said he won’t let this experience scare him off. What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.
