    I am sorry for him. I wish him the very best recovery.

    And for others that may be afraid of fire and ease of escape. Put your seat belt on, and run a 5 pound bottle of Halon if it is just to the engine compartment. Or run a small bottle of ColdFire to the drivers compartment. When you start running these engines like we do, things may happen, and fires are common. A tad extra safety does not hurt.

    It's amazing he's even alive! Why would we race without a seatbelt on though And was the road straight they raced on or did it have some turns in it?

    Oh,
    I wanted to update you guys with new info on my friend. He WAS wearing his seatbelt. 1987 300zx turbo's seatbelt got dry rotted and broke when he crashed. He is in stable condition. The swelling in his brain has started to recede. He did sustain minor brain damage. He can't hold in acute emotion sometimes. But, believe it or not, he had NO broken bones. His car landed on his ankle after he was thrown. I dont know how this didnt break his leg but God only knows. I told him that a bunch of guys on my forum were pulling for him and he was appreciative of that. Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers; even though he isnt out of the woods yet.

    Thanks for the update.
    We wish him the best.
    I guess that explains why SFI makes us renew our seat belts every three years.

    Glad to hear that it sounds though he will be OK at the end. I have to say, this is what happens when you street race. Play with fire, ...

    My last real stupid street move was years ago when I was racing a then new cougar v6 with some gay **** on it. Driver lost control, flipped the car a few times, both driver and passanger stayed in the hospital for close to a week. All for what a cheap bet, or a stupid stunt, so not worth it. I know I felt guilty, I was driving a car w/5 passangers well into the triple digits on a winding country road, how irresponsible of me. I guess you live and learn. You know if he died, they could've charged the other driver w/2nd degree murder or something to that effect, also something to keep in mind.
