145 – Tire Alignments

Last night we went to a workshop for how to actually align the wheels for our soap box derby car.

It was overwhelming!  There is a lot to consider from toe in to toe out of the wheel and also camber which is like a tilt of the wheels and then there is weight to consider and it really comes down to THOUSANDTHS OF AN INCH.

If not done properly, the car loses speed due to friction and improper alignment of the wheels.  And as a chiropractor, I love that we are talking about alignment and efficiency.

We waste energy and talent when we are out of alignment to our core values.

What’s worse is that the tiniest misalignment will someday lead us to being WAY off course!   If a plane leaves LA toward New York and they are 1 degree off course, they end up over 300 miles off their intended destination.  Which is why you have to purposely take time to check in with yourself and see if you’re on target for your goals.

30 days, 60 days, 90 days, 2 weeks, 1 day…  you need to stop and see if what you’re doing is actually doing and make adjustments.

In derby racing we align the wheels before every race day.
