i heard it's best to just let out the clutch and put it in nuetral. If someone rear-ends me that'll make me a happy camper. INSURANCE CLAIM!!!!
I got rear-ended by some idiot kid last month.. but since im throwing the kit on anyways I didn't wanna make him claim it, he wouldn't have been able to pay for the insurance on his beat up ford tempo.
The worst part of it was, some idiot in front of me came to a complete stop infront of a speed bump to talk to his friend, I didn't leave any space because I was assuming he'd keep going, then I check my rear view Mirror
and see the kid coming too fast, and there was nothing I could do but wait for the bang. If the kid hadn't realized at the last second and turned to try to avoid it, he would have bounced off and there wouldn't have been nearly as much damage. Instead, he scraped off 2 feet of paint from my bumper.
Now I always leave space to get out of the way, even at speed bumps.
