rally crash

Recommended Posts

i recked my hach on sunday morning about4:30 am on a paved road about 30 miles from my house way up in the mountains. i was just sliding around all the corners then there was one with just to much sand and slid right in to the hillside on the driver side. i was doing about 30-40mph before i hit then just came to a dead stop, my friend had his seatbelt on and still he was almost sitting in my lap. didn't a little bit of body damage and bent the f***ing ************ out of the left rear control arm, ripped off a mud flap. i had to drive the car to my friends house and the car drove kind of sideways the whole way there, it was a long drive at 15mph. but neither one of us where really hurt that bad, just kind or sore.

Where did you crash at? I almost lost it in my Legacy a few years ago on Badger Mountian doing 70mph on one of those primative roads, when there was still 2 feet of snow on the ground...

There wasn't any snow in this crash?? Crashing in snow is always accepted, encouraged even.

I was thinking more about the poor car than the driver :-p

A few weeks ago I punted the justy into a concrete barrier. I was in 4wd and going around a sharp wet right hand turn at 50mph. I started sliding but the 4wd was holding me there. Then the rear DS tire hit the painted line and that was the end of it. I spun 180 and into the barrier on the outside of the turn. Popped a tire, bent a rim and control arm. No body damage and no witnesses though luckily. I wont be trying that again. Crashing sucks.

i live out in the sticks and everytime i leave my house there is a sharp turn on a paved road about a kilometer away. one day i went into the ditch on that turn because i accidentally gunned the motor going around it. i managed to roll onto the door and crushed my mirror. that was embarassing. wasnt in a sube though.

Be careful, I almost hit a heard of Elk there once, when coming into a blind corner... My cousin also died not to far from their when her car flew off the road and hit a tree...

Sorry folks, but the term "rallying" implies that you are involved in a Rally. If there's no Rally happening at the time, it's just wreckless driving. Be careful that you don't give "Rallying" a bad name.

Witch turn were you on up there? Maybe the crash was not just from driving too fast. I grew-up on those roads and still drive them all the time and have slid many times because of too much sand and not driving too fast. The slope on some of those turns is not going the right way. Then again it could have been from going too fast. It has been known to happen at 4 am.
