I shouldn't laugh but I did anyway.
Of all the various threads I've read about wrecked RWD cars, they almost always go along the lines of, "I used to do this in my engine swapped Honda."
I just have to laugh when I think that this person expected a RWD car to behave the same as a FWD Honda something or other when the throttle was opened up enough to break the tires loose. There's a very simple rule for pretty much any car when turning. When the drive wheels break loose, they go in the opposite direction of the turn. For a FWD car this means you go straight. For a RWD car this means the back end goes straight, and you end up looking the opposite direction. I can't fathom how people don't understand this, but that's the way my convoluted mind works.

Glad the driver and passenger are Ok, and no one else was caught up in the accident. Props to the owner for having the guts to make a public apology. Now go do some donuts in a parking lot and learn to keep the tail in check! :D

Maybe apology is the wrong word. Who is he apologizing to, the owner of the telephone pole he hit? Why should he need to apologize to us? :popcorn:

so maybe if you have to money to buy one and your coming from purely FWD cars you should buy a cheap RWD car to play around with.Although some people just can't be helped my first RWD car was a volvo 240 wagon and it felt really natural to slide it around.On the test drive I actually went a bit tail out on a gravel road at slowish(20-30 MPH compared to my normal 60 :) ) just to see how it was..
