    People are always so quick to blame their RE92's for their accident.

    Well.....tires aren't the ones that cause accidents.

    Sucks about the damage, though. At least you're okay

    Do you think going too fast may have played a part?

    That all depends if on what you were trying to do at the time. Cars don't normally lose control of themselves.

    Dude, I wanted to ask you if they had put your car on one of the frame alignment dealies??

    Also, the RE92's flat out suck. You do have to drive the car for the tires you have, but I never felt comfortable on those tires.

    yes they did, but they didnt have to move it much.


    im not saying it wasnt my falut because it was.

    had gone trough that turn a hundred times at that speed and nothing, then one day is was a little wet and i forgot to factor in that part of the equation. iv learned from my mistake and was just trying to let other people know to be careful

    im not saying if i had better tires that my wreck would not have happened, but you allways wonder.

    now when it rains i dont take anyturn over 10....
