This should be a really good topic, perhaps we can even make a sticky when we get to the end of it. Let's comprise a comprehensive list of things that we need to check on our cars before we leave for a run. When you add something, cut and paste from the list before and add yours to the end of it. Cool? I'll start:

- Lug nut torque
- CV bolt torque
- Steering wheel bolt torque (mine likes to loosen up)
- Tire pressure
- Oil Level
- Towbar bracket welds
- Shock bolt torque
- Link pin nuts
- Steering box/tie rod nuts
- Window cranks/door handles (mine like to fall off when I'm bouncing around)
- Lube front end
- Emergency kit contents
- Check for abnormal oil leaks (notice I said "abnormal"?)

OK...

That's a start. Add yours. Don't forget the cut and paste!
