Accident

Postby Tazka » Mon Nov 26, 2007 9:00 pm

Uff, i was playing aroung again with my car on snowy rally roads...When this happened:

Amateurs mistake i was overdoing my slide, lifted throttle too late to get the grip to get the car straight.
My very first mistake with celica. Im so glad it didn't get hurt that bad; front fender cracked, light damage to the bumper.

You could have just hit on the brake and e-brake simultaneously for a quick sec without letting up on the throttle too much and then transfer the weight back to the front. But I guess on snow that shit just happens so quick huh!

Sorry about the damage....all in the game right?

That sucks. Maybe you should get a subaru to practice in and beat up, then you can show off in the gtfour. :D

If that was a subaru, he probably wouldn't have been around after that hiccup! :lol:

Sorry was too tired yesterday to think wisely where to post this...

Thank you for your concern all.

You could have just hit on the brake and e-brake simultaneously for a quick sec without letting up on the throttle too much and then transfer the weight back to the front. But I guess on snow that shit just happens so quick huh!

Yes i could have done that but im not juha kankkunen. :D

It happened so fast, narrow unknown road and very dark. Yes, it was a stupid idea to practice rally in those conditions.

Ill try to take pics tomorrow if i have time.

BTW. It's lovely to go sideways with this car on snow! even with open diff's and everything stock! :)
