**** I guess I better get ready if my front brakes go. I have boots tough. Leather. This is not funny at all. I just checked the front and it still works. I don't even know how I made it here. My hands are full of oil.

How is that even possible. People can die. I can die. Its not like a car you know. My truck has 4 dics wheel brakes but this. I am terrified. I think that I am going to call my mom and see if she can follow me home.

I can actually see lines in an axis to the tire where the oil got on the tires. That is ****ing freaky. I drove to school and work with oil on my tires. Well I work at some place that has not been paved so the dirt took care of the oil.

ok. That makes me feel way better seriously. I use a lot of both tough. I use rear brakes and front. I guess that I can just down shift to slow the rear. i am just afraid that if i do it might wheel hop.

Just be easy letting the clutch out if you're unsure of how fast you can go when you downshift, if it feels like it's going to grab too much, squeeze the clutch back in.

Ok, done deal thanks for everything. I just used like 8 big ole plastic cups of water and a brush to get the oil off. Also the Plate under my tail tells me there was some major leaking. It has a straight line with oil which I am guessing came from the tire rotation. Now its about to rain! Not a good day..not one at all....
