I was heading to 81S in Liverpool, NY by the bridge near Heids (for those that wanna relate). I'm in my massive beast the auto rx8 and was creating a masterpiece with my paddle shifts, lol! I'm in the passing lane and I see a yellow rex gaining up on me in the right lane. I'm already going pretty fast and I don't think I quite broke 100. Anyhow, he passes me with ease and I give the thumbs up. He's now about 300 feet ahead and I see him brake hard and bob to the right. When he tried to straighten out he over did it and when he went left it 360'd over into the oncoming lane. He barely missed an oncoming truck as he bounced into the ditch. His front end was messed up but there was so much muddy grass kicked up it was hard to tell the extent. I pulled over and collected myself. I run over and see if he's ok which he was. He was real appreciative for checking on him which is cool. He said "I wasn't trying to race I just wanted to see what this thing can do." I kinda laughed and said move into a stage 4 if this thing lasts long enough. He called for a tow and I was on my way. Scary stuff. The roads weren't ideal as we'd gotten some snow overnight and I think there were probably some black ice.
Makes you check yourself in a heartbeat and I'm most thankful it wasn't worse since that truck was really close.
Ok, nuff of the sad and wake up's. For anyone who would say it's a drivers race, uhhhh no. The rx8 is the drag queen of all imports. I miss my wrx. It was fast. Every jarhead in a civic or avenger or sunfire wants their kill........................oh well 19 inch volks on hks coilovers at least gets some good looks. It's like being a pro body builder on juice but can only bench 135.
On a side note, maybe buying a grand national unmodded and 50k on the odo. I heard they're sorta fast,
