    Sad video Integra Type R

    Saw it from acura-legend.com forum. Not sure if AWD could save the driver but the point is think again about street racing.
    Sorry if it's a bit off-topic.

    How did they get the tape from the guy in camera since they crashed and appeared to trash everything?

    2 different cameras I'd imagine. One on board and one road-side.

    Maybe the camera still worked?

    I think a 5 point seat belt is the only thing that would have saved his life... When you start to do speed over 100MPH you should start think safty..

    When I go to the track.. they give you a hard time if you don't have a 4 or 5 point.. Sears point "hot laps" for just that reason.. if you roll 2 or 3 times a car you standard seat bets will not hold you in properly.. you will hit the door.. while a 5 point will keep you in your seat 100%

    Too bad for the guy..

    I'm ashamed to say that I've ramped my car (yes, the WRX, but it was a total accident) at about 120mph with five people in the car, flew a good 50 feet, landed, and kept going. I used to have a video of it (from the car), but the camera's owner erased the tape before i could rip it. When I landed, the force made my ear hit my shoulder. think about that. I think that's about the exact second I realized what an F'ing idiot I was. I honestly wouldn't believe that you could come off of a jump like that at 120 and NOT lose it, but I watched the video 100 times that night realizing how lucky I was. Now i wonder if awd is the only thing that saved me. Looking back, I just can't believe I was sooo stupid (passengers! at 120 on a two lane!) I feel so bad when I look back on the times I've endangered other people's lives, it gets depressing. a lesson learned though

    anybody that tries to launch a nice car for a cheap thrill is an idiot in my book.

    Just because they do it in movies, doesn't mean you should do it.

    what a waste of a nice car.

    Stupid Sh*t. I know a kid that rolled his ford explorer over railroad tracks doing that. Luckily he was ok.
