I would Like to thank Billy (Evil_Irish) and Eddie (RedSunCelica

I would like to thank Billy and Eddie for helping me out, after I had crashed into the dried busheds and almost off a small hill, today after the TRD/TWS Meet in SD. and Also want to thank the 3 bikers and guy with the huge truck that pulled me out. and I would like to Thank GOD, this incident was not as bad, as if i would have rolled off the hill.



Damage:

Front Lip is gone, flew off when i was heading home on the 15N fwy, if anyone sees it, you can have it. and I am leaking some oil, but don't know where, so on monday I am taking it to the dealer and have them check it out... Everything else on my car is fine.

lessoned Learn:

Never go on a canyon Run Again. and Now i am going to be driving slowly and cautionously from now on.

Be careful out there, when speeding on the streets, you don't want to end up like me.


if you would like to see the picture...Billy took some pictures of my accident.

well we were like turning the corners about 80mph or a bit less, I first saw Billy Hop a turn, and landed straight, then when my car hopped on the turn, i couldn't striaght it out, Braked, and was swaying back and forth until i finally ended up crashing into the dried bushes...

I stepped out and i was like, WTF, where is the ground...then i looked down, and saw that my left tire was hanging off the hill...

Dude of course where gonna stay and help out thumbsup just chill on the driving for a while and put the stock bumper back on. the leaky oil is probably from the Oil Filter. so nothing major to worry about as long as you walked away from it its all that matters.

sorry to hear about the front bumper im swingin up north tommorow so if i see it and its in good condition ill pick it up.

Testing your limits should be done in a safe environment where you cannot damage your or other cars or injury or kill yourself.

Even a track can not give you that. Maybe a better margin of safety, but its still dangerous. I rely on my own judgement in each situation to keep me alive. So far so good. thumbsup

Autox courses provide you with a chance to test your car's limits on a skidpad like surface with very little chances of hitting a strutural object. The only thing you'll be able to hit is cones... I have total faith in the safety of me, others and my vehicle whenever I autocross.

Wow, first off lemme say glad nobody got hurt.

Second, if you are going to do a run those who know the road or have done runs before should really be watching out for first timers. ESPECIALLY if its their first time.

This should apply to all. KNOW WHEN TO BACK OFF!! I know adrenaline is pumping and you might want to keep up or whatever, but know when to put your foot off the gas people. Remember this is not a game and seriously injury or death is a big maybe.

As far as testing your limits go, this should really be done at autoX/track events. You can go as fast as you want there, spin out and still be able to drive home (there are exceptions tho). Like it was mentioned above, even track events aren't safe as others can crash into you heh.

Anyway use your best judgement and stay safe while having fun is the motto of the story, glad everything turned out ok for the most part.
