Had a bit of a bad smash last night, the pictures tell it all!





The outside of the wheel with tyre intact! :eek:



Rest of the car!





Car is easily fixable, nothing too mega. We were lucky on three counts though! The curb was slanted, if it was vertical we would of gone onto the roof I think!

The back end just missed a curb, think that would of launched us too.

We went over the curb onto some grass, and just missed a big lampost with my side of the car!

No injuries, only a bit of bent metal

Here is what it was before...





XE running SBD TP 270 Kit,
Straight Cut F25 Box
Bremsport 4 Pots
Stack Dash
Stripped out
Mad suspention mods

It will be back bigger and better though!

Bodywork doesn't look damaged from what I can see. Bet those wheels aren't cheap though!

We did the trim as a joke LOL

Matt he just took a wide line, carried too much speed and lifted off slightly too much. Put power down to pull us out but no grip

Whats done is done! I've a sore back and neck a bit, but nothing mega.. could of been SO much worse!

Brakes, it squashed something on the bottom of the caliper, but he has a spare set of them.... and he can repair the ones on the car. Discs got a bit of a scrape too...
