This is that same one posted in a wrecked mustang thread somewhere around here (on via tapatalk and not searching). Recognize the tire on the roof, plus Houston.

Here's a FoRS specific mention I found over on Twitter. Street racing incident was posted last week from around Houston, TX. Car allegedly had only 100 miles put on it. No mention of injuries.

This thread does not make me think of cheap parts. As they're tacked up here It's become my weekly reminder to be grateful. I was almost one of these cars.. lady veered into my lane driving a early 1990 era minivan. Prolly texting.. Would have been a dual 55 mph head on collision. I shudder to think of that outcome, and had I not been driving a brand new FoRS with phenomenal steering response I'm pretty sure my old car would not have saved me. I thank God for my RS every day. It was nearly totaled, but it saved my life too. You try jerking the steering wheel to the right 30+ degrees on a straight going 55-60 mph every. day.


*edit I said 90 degrees. Meant 45 degrees..

Enough is enough. Could you all just stop totaling these cars?!

I had to go look at crashed Type Rs and STIs to feel better.

It's them young whipper snappers and their damn drift mode button!
Why try to drift with Pilot Sport Cup 2 180 UGT ratings sticky tire? Sounds counter productive , no?

Not me, but was there. They had these barriers on the outside of the slalom section and the car under steered into it. Just too quick for the section was all.
