    EVO 8 vs. Pole

    http://dsmtuners.com/forums/showthre...threadid=39972








    "Exactly. Was going around a corner at 90mph, got the rear tires off the road, and spun out in some gravel, coming to a stop against a telephone pole. This all happened with the Salesman in the car too, the guy ended up buying it, and wanted to get it fixed before he takes it home. They said its going to be a while before it gets fixed, the parts have to be shipped from Japan.

    The guy must suck at driving, its a rally car, and he wrecked it cause he hit some gravel."

    glad i`m not the only one who sees this...if you hit a pole doing 90 around a bend,no matter what angle you hit it from theres going to be *some* damage to the glass,wether its just cracked or shattered,or just miss aligned...and unless it was one of those poles at walmart that they have sitting on the sidewalk,theres going to be damage the whole way up the door,not just up to the door handle,it looks more like someone hit it with a baseball bat.

    Hit the gravel doing 90mph. Then spun out. All that spinning and attempted braking I'm sure it could've slowed down to about 30mph before hitting the poll.

    Ya know it COULD have been one of those poles that block cars from going on certain sidewalks (the short but bulky iron poles) or yeah even the concrete base of a pole, too much bs flags goin around...lol I doubt the guy would lie by saying he ran into a pole, that's pretty embarrassing.
