well actually I tried chevy, and it was a bit small. I kinda gave up and just hat it towed home on a flatbed.
basically, heres the story:
It was a rainy Saturday night, and out racing club headed down to a big empty parking ot in the industrial zone late at night to take advantage of the weather and do some drifting. I started running out of gas, and decided to go to the nearby station to get some. on my way out of a lot (this is my first time there) I am drifting around the side of the warehouse, in the biggest, fastest and by far sickest drift ever, expecting nothing but pavement in my path. Out of nowhere, tallest curb ever. It was the only gay parking lot curb in the whole block, and I found it!.
people say they saw my back end lift like 3 feet off the ground.
So far, the damage I found is:
- all four rims totalled
- 2 Michelin pilots punctured.
- Front Left lower control arm bent beyond recognition.
- At least 2 shocks are shot
- Front right lower control arm may be bent as well. Still have to get a good look at it.
- Very possible damage to rear lower control arms (or whatever those things are called)
-frame damage. frame looks good. I went down there and measured it with a ruler all over, and nothing looks demented in any way.
-body damage. front bumper was pretty unaffected, although the curb was so high, im sure it scraped the bumper cover. Im lucky my air bag didnt go off.
Will fix it by spring. bavauto has excellent prices on suspension parts, but if you guys know something better, than please tell me.
For now shes in my garage, and will be there for entire winter (since im parking it for the winter anyway, because of this I guess ill have to start driving my beater hyundai early this year.
I feel very bad about what happened. We try to do it in the safest enviorment possible, but I guess I got carried away and screwed up the first of the three stages of drifting, which is "seeing the drift". I saw it quite well, except for the god damn curb around the corner.
