It's just an imaginary contest-no dangerous feats involved.

Here's another.

. . . . my new axle is so soft that if drove 60 miles with a dozen raw eggs balanced on the edge of the dinette, and none of them broke.

Next entry?

That's good stuff! Thanks for the update. Dexter makes a great product!

I am confident that you will have many happy miles ahead!

See if anyone can top this:

. . . My new axle is so smooth I drove 50 miles with an open can of POR-15 paint on the kitchen counter.

Other entries?
My new axles will be so smooth, I plan to drive 150 miles with a dining table setting for four with Wedgewood china and Waterford Crystal and an open bottle of Two-Buck Chuck.
