Default That new car feel

Question for ya, Whats the best way of keeping that new car feel?

Constant diff rebuilds?
Replacing hubs, caster blocks, bearings, belts?

Any ideas.

Dont drive it!

Best way is to keep off the walls. Keep your SH#@@ clean and replace bearings after they get gritty.

Diff rebuilds, shock rebuilds, check for any developed slop in suspension parts, tweak, clean bearings, replace parts that wear out (belts).
