Two teenagers both with Wrx's were racing in Thousand oaks, CA in a windy road. One knicked a tree and flipped over nine times and died instantly. There names were Josh Putolo and davey Holiday. Josh putolo is the one that died. Please be careful street racing.

or dont street race - always the best answer. Save it for the track. I know, i am finding myself floorign it sometimes in first to get thrown in my seat, and its a abd habbit.

How is the other boy who did not die? Hopefully doing good? And my condolences going out to both families, esecially the one who suffered a lost.

thats why i wish i knew the limits ofmy car, so i never do anything too stupid. Also want to go to a driving school to learn how to drive fast/under control. So that way in any situation, i can keep my cool and hopefully not get hurt.

I learned my lesson on the street and luckily no one was hurt, but caused about 10k in damage to my car. My advice don't race on the street, you never know when its going to go bad. Although people never really listen and have to find out for themselves. Unfortunetly sometimes it costs people their lives. So please save it for the track or auto-x or rally-x.

there's a fine line between spirited driving and wreckless driving.
we got our rexes for thrills from day to day, so driving it hard during safe conditions is understandable. but i dont think we should find the limits of our vehicles in situations where innocent motorist are operating on the same road. leave stupidity and racing off the streets.

i was a pretty stupid driver when i was a teen too. good thing my dad gave me a slow jeep, i mighta been dead by now. i'm a much different driver half a decade later.

unfortunately for those young kids, their ego got the best of the them. it's not the first time i hear of fatal crashes from the result of street racing. and i doubt it'll be the last time i hear of it. too young to die. RIP.

No offense, but it's everything about being young and inexperienced. I am amazed by all of the teenagers driving fast cars nowadays. I thought I knew everything as a teenager and thought my Dad was an idiot and it took me a good five years of driving like an idiot to figure out my Dad was right.

If I had a car this fast when I was a teenager I would be dead. No question about it. Teenagers with good judgement are a rare bird as statistics and insurance rates prove.
