« on: January 27, 2011, 09:14:55 AM »
I know the mods don't allow street racing I wish you guys would just let me slide :-D but I wanted to post this vid and story as a learning experience and what it sounds like when your ic piping blows off. After I tOld my wife what happend and that she herd some hot girl was in my car the couch was my bed for the night :-/
Note it was not raining and roads where dry. It started to rain after I pulled over and put my ic piping back on.

Thanks guys. Back is just a lil sore.

I was making a left coming off I-95 to head west back to the meet. It was drizzling a lil and I just made a very bad decision and decided to give it some gas as I was making the turn.

When i shifted to 2nd it was over, back end just went out. I fought to gain control but I had :censor: ed up from the beginning. There was no saving it. I went from the far left to the far right lane at the end of it and hit the guard rail with my front left headlight, so when I stopped I was facing oncoming traffic. Thank god there were no other cars around and that My friend and I were okay.   

I'm just disappointed at how irresponsible I was. I am a prime example that you should play it safe at all times. It could have been a lot worse.  I can't thank God more for allowing my friend and I to make it home without a scratch after the mistake I made.


The car is hit pretty banged up on the front end. The core support is bent, i Don't about the subframe. Its parked at my grandparents house. I haven't gotten to look at it today, don't really want to to be honest. If I can fix it I will because without my grandfather I would have never gotten it. I'd like to fix it for him. If its totaled I'll just decide then what my next step is.

slowsol, a pic of the girl that was in the car, is a must for us to decide if sleeping on the couch was justified...    ;)

So you popped your pipe with a hot girl, your wife heard about it, and you slept in the couch for the night.

I agree with Arabas, we need to see pictures of this hot girl to see if sleeping on the couch was justified or your wife was just being a hard ass.

i think that Joe has said that he is not keen in hosting street racing videos on this forum... :(
at least not the ones in the US. europeans are lucky :yay:

about a year ago, i was with 4 more GTs going home after a coffee meeting. i was 4th in the row and behind me the last GT.
at some point i looked in my rearviewmirror and saw the guy with alarms on pulling over.
stopped to see what happened and he said that all the sudden he had no boost. popped the hood and saw the passenger's ic pipe (the siliconepart) had popped off.
the day before, he had installed a CAI, removed the silicone part of the ic pipe to have some room to work and he hadn't tighten it enough.
we all were so relieved that that was all!!

slowsol, why so long for a pic??
you aren't editing in photoshop anything, are you??  :poke:

T Bolts. and tighten them down.

Last time my charge elbow blew it was like a gunshot, and the charge pipe smacked into something metal so I thought my engine was bye bye. But luckily it was all good.

In the vid it sounds like this is a reoccurring theme...   hot girl in the car, race, pop an ic pipe... hot girl in the car, race, pop an ic pipe... sleep on the couch.

T Bolts. and tighten them down.

I hear t-bolts work well for tightening up stories before they are told to the wife too.
