RIP my sweet 8

So my 8 is no more she was totaled on 5/1/10. I wrecked on the backroads into a tree. came off of a sharp hair pin turn no problem. I start to pick up speed into the straight away and shift gears. whoops pop the clutch and the back end comes out from under neth me, but I have done some drifting as well as events and know how to get out of it so thats what I do. I start to level out and my rear left wheel hits a patch of mud. That mud acts as a magnet and pulls the car straight off the road right into a tree. Mind you this is at 35mph at a 45 mph limit with no pools of water but not dry roads. The cop tried to give me a ticket for failure to reduce speed to avoid an acciedent. HOW do you avoid and accident? ITS AN ACCIDENT! o well it got dropped. no one was around when this happed anyways. All this on my fiance's 19th birthday. I am the one who gets a face full of tree and she is on the side that is fine and checks into the hospital due to chest pains and a messed up foot. I was not able to save the majority of mods I had done, but I was able to pull my 800 dollar exhaust off and leave the oem one in its place so that helps. my new rims are smashed, dry carbon hood is gone, clear corners wrecked, new drilled and slotted rottors with new hawk hps pads gone, as well as my aem intake. Smaed the front bad sheard my front left wheel of with the a arms and brake componets still inside lol, which fell down a 20 foot slope into a creek. The towe people left it so once out of the hospital I had to go back and retrieve it my self. I got the wheel but am covered in posion ivy now awesome. luckily those trees where there cause if not the car would have flipped and we would be dead. So anyways I owed about 10,000 left on the car, I am getting a check for 3,200 so at least I have a down payment. I plan on getting another 8 if I can. I had a red one so time to change it up White or Black is the question on my mind now. here are some pics that you can cringe at posted on my teams airsoft forum I will try to dierect link later:

Could always have been worse. Salvage what you can and don't trust back roads anymore. The only twisty roads in our area are back roads. Unfortunatly, that means they aren't taken care of, and may ruin us. When I go on motorcycle rides I talk with riders about which roads have holes and gravel.

PS. Airsoft, yay
