    OK!

    Here is what happened at the end.

    We were all going for a drive. About 6 Subarus and PlatinumWRX's black 350Z leading the pack.

    Slight rain.

    The 350Z has Jim driving and Tim (Timdog1650) sitting shotgun.

    SpeedRacerWRX02 was behind them (2nd car) so maybe he can tell it better. I was pretty far back in someone else's car.

    We all entered an S turn going around 45. Jim accelerated to around 55, then at the end of the 2nd turn, he downshifted and accelerated, and spun the car around backwards, and into the other lane. Still backwards, he smashed the guardrail, and traveled along it for about 30 yards, destroying the Z. Jim and Tim both climbed out unscathed...but the Z is probably totaled. I dunno yet.

    Sad way to end a meet.

    was a site i dont care to see again.

    ya he was in front and i was 2nd and i slowed down before the out part of the S turn and he didn't. Not sure if he downshifted or just put the foot down but i came around it and as soon as i did i see his car go from straight to sideways to around and whack hit the guardrail. no lie his back end must've jumped like a foot in the air it seemed from the speed he was going. i was shocked!! i had to pick my jaw up from the car floor. so i pulled over and everyone pulled over and me and evil imports got out right away to see if everyone was ok, thankfully they were. thats most imp that jim and timdog were ok. the car was messed up i think it's totalled the rear end was hit hard. glass and plastic and everything was all over the ground. hopefully pics get up soon so u can see it. was def a terrbile way to end a fun day!! hopefully everything works out for jim

    so jim if ur reading nice meeting ya and good luck with whatever the car situation is

    I was third inline and saw nothing but Speed's brakelights and a cloud of dirt and leaves when the Z hit. Speed and I were both pretty hard on the brakes for that turn. Erin saw the whole thing from my passenger seat. She said the car exploded pretty bad on impact. I was watching too many things to really see what happened. It all happened in that eery slow motion type thing. I am really happy that all are OK.

    Other than that, the day was awesome. Andy's car was awesome, it sounded just like a real 555 taking off when he went for his test drive to see how he liked his pulley.

    I got the Autospeed up-pipe installed and I will post a good review of it when I get a good chunk of time, first impression is very VERY good.

    Again, good day, good people, and I highly recommend Autospeed parts, people, and services to anyone out there.

    PS. I will drop off my film sooner than later and get some pics posted as well.

    The strangest thing about it was I head nothing, total silence, no tires, no impact, just total silence. It was a very scary feeling. I cannot say enough how glad I am that everyone is OK. After I pulled over I was in shock, it took me a few seconds to react and get my ass out of the car to see it all was OK, I feel like a dope for freezing like that.
