    Did I screw up my car?

    Hey hope you guys can help me out. Was driving back yesterday from work and may have done something that could hurt my WRX. While accelerating to make a traffic light that was about to turn red, I sped through an intersection (~30-40 mph). The road has a roll/dip in ip and while going over it my car had some significant up/down motion. I feel like I maybe making a big deal out of this, especially because my car did not bottom out. Just hoping to get some reassurance or if you guys have any advice on places to check for damage.

    Thanks

    yeah, you didn't do anything wrong to the car but it sounds to me like that would have been a bit of fun

    Well, I think the point he was trying to make is that you were driving the car the way it should be driven! :P

    As long as it didn't bottom out there is no damage. Even when it does bottom out there's usually no damage unless it's way hard. Just normal fun. I was in a similar spot last night, on a left turn. Decided to be peaceful and rolled to a stop in the intersection, with turn signal on. Lo and behold, first car in the stack coming at me was a LEO...
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Now that I know what LEO means, its a good thing you held back. Don't need to give cops any more reasons to pull us over as is!

    Don't drive like an idiot and they don't have any reasons to pull you over.

    Don't tell me how to live my life! But yea obviously...What I was saying is that if a camry did something (for example speed through an intersection that was about to turn red) a cop wouldn't think twice, but if a wrx did it they may be more apt to pull that car over.
