    Well, I didn't have any luck yesterday. It's 100% totaled. I rolled it on lap 7 out of 300...... I broke tons of suspension stuff, i broke my rack and pinion, and both axles...... And the car got slammed into from the back because I had to leave the thing parked on the track.......

    In car videos and pictures of damage will hopefully be up sometime tommorow.


    Here's a friend's video of it happening:

    Wow! glad your alright. 288 is a douchebag that can't drive. I can't tell if he was hit to start that but he sure did finish you. sorry to hear, but you'll get it right again. If I had the parts you'd need, I'd donor them up.

    yeah, we (288 and I) were involved in a chain reaction. It wasn't his fault. In fact the whole thing was caused by accident. #7 went high coming out of the corner and didn't see the cars outside him. He bumped one of them, and the one he bumped spun into 288, which spun into me. Lol, I was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.

    It runs, but doesn't move, as the axle and steering rack are busted up from the landing. :(

    I'm hoping to get it racing again, but i don't know how bad the suspension is bent up. And the roof is caved in, and the gas tank leaks. I might just transfer everything over to another protege or an escort gt that has a blown motor or tranny if this one is to badly damaged. Right now its just sitting until after christmas, as I don't have any time to look it over right now.

    Yeah, I think it's bad too, but I'll be fixing it and seeing what happens. If it won't handle right, I'll have to just build a new car.
