    The morning after the night before....

    Well last night- i was on my way up to a mates, its country roads up to her house so 60 all the way, problem is, went round a 40mph corner at 25 because it was a bit damp - the back end lost all its grip and fish tailed round the fronts lost theirs as well and followed....

    I made a perfect 360 spin and bounced up the curb on to the grass.... got out the car and checked my alloys - no problem, no noticable dammage, drove on- felt like the tracking was out, fair enuff - expected really

    any way, got up this morning and decided to have a proper look - jacked the car up and the front passenger side wheel is F***ED



    rest of the car is fine tho - riding on steelies again tho!

    ah well we live and learn......
