I was going about 55 and I felt my car slow down soo much!!! I thought the bmw behind me was going to rear end me since i slowed down soo much without pressing the brake..and water flying up over my windows eek

I was like ahh great hydrolock cry


but nope I slowly let on the Gas it seemed to be okay and off I went.. no worries thumbsup

Actually if you go through fast enough, the car "gets out of the way" before the water has time to splash up into the engine compartment. And no, the lesson to be learned here is NOT to go faster when approaching a puddle!


300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

I'm going to do what I have always done when it rained, since getting the Injen Intake... I think i might take the Celica out and go out sliding around in the water (and pickup a bag of doritos chips while I'm at it)

I love my Injen thumbsup
