Well I was on the way home tonight. I was following a done up civic. I turned a corner hard. heard something break. About 150-200 feet later the car turned left...HARD!. well it was at a intersection. the car jumped the curb at about 60..ish. tore off the front end .. oil pan and anything else on the bottom. From what i could see in the dark. the oil pan is gone the front suspension on the left is broke and the front of the mtech .. well it was 25 feet in front of the car. *shiner* . Guess the suspension upgrade will come sooners. not to mention the m50.that was some crazy shit!!. it has been about a half hour.. and still got the shakes. I managed to drive the car about 2 blocks home. tore up a lawn and the motor is wrecked not to mentiont he molded front.. well not any more. *shiner*

I am ok but cant stop shakin..I am pissed about the car. it can be fixed.. no frame damage so i can see. the rims.. who knows. the kit.. well the front lower is gone.. one signal. and both fogs. the front left control arm is ok but the ball joint is completely out. i will asses the damage in the light *shiner*

Ouch man.

Ya I didn't mean it as a compliment or discouraging really, more of an observation.

Again the good thing is you are still around.

Fil, ya eventually (next year I hope) I am going to build a minitruck, but thats off topic.

I have an eta motor if you are looking to replace or fix the parts... I will sell it to ya REAL cheap!

Good thing that you are ok... I bet the control arm bushings snapped from the body.... what would cause a car to just jump left hard?

looks like I broke a ball joint. Thus far the damage is not too bad. looks like a blew a shock, control arm took off the pan & pump ( one dead ETA) and snapped off the mtechII lower. The rims both have a very small ding in them. nothing that would not be able to balance out. Might have blown a belt in the left front tire. At least I didnt get charged and I am ok. I can fix the car. the front lower came off in one piece. a few scrapes and the grill piece in it snapped. but otherwise in one full piece no cracks. the fenders are fine, steering rack seems ok. I am going to replace both control arms, shocks tierod ends,the rack and front tires. Where the kit was molded to the front fenders cracked but is easily repairable. I had a split second to decide if to take the curb or a head on crash with a car. I would do the same again.............My life before anyone else.*shiner*
thanks for the concern guys*th-up*

It is discouraging for sure.. but all in all I am better now. I was pretty pissed about the whole thing. I am just praying that the car only has suspension damage. I will finish a e30................

Got the list of damaged parts from the mechanic. ball joint left side,inner and outer, left shock, tierod,damaged rad cradle, oil pan and pump, motor mounts. front lip and lower of the front bumper,signal light and left front flex line. no pics yet.
No frame damage!!!!!!!!

The Sly

Ha Great ..the main thing is the frame....
AS for the rest, you can get it all from any other E30 and then get the bodywork done again *mumble*

Jase
11-11-2004, 10:58 PM
gotta love doing bodywork again.. but at least i have the chance to make it straight this time.
