Hey Mike, didnt realize it was you. I just spoke with Anthony about that car,lol.
For the rest of you, the story goes like this. One of the car porters takes this nice new silver beauty out. He's in 6th gear on the highway at around 60mph, wanted to drop it into 4th but it went into 2nd instead. The rear locked up, car spun out of control, hit the divider wall and got t-boned by another car.

Rule #1 - Don't turn off the traction contol unless you're truly ready to concentrate on your driving.
I NEVER break rule #1. 400 HP is to be respected. And in a $50K car it should also be feared at least a little.

Sounds like an inexperienced driver an experienced driver would have put the clutch in fast once they felt the engine rev up that fast.

Those pics are pretty sad considering that the vehicle wasn't even his.
What is a porter???
They are usually the guys that drive your vehicle to the back whenever you drop it off at the dealer for any service work.

Porter = the guy that washes the cars at the dealer - can you say, "he's screwed?"

Yeah he did a nice number on that car

Definitely inexperience. The above is correct. Experienced drivers would've avoided that by quickly getting back on the clutch :)

either way, he should be fired for taking the car out on the highway in the first place.

Yea when in doubt push the clutch in. I dont thing the traction control would have saved his ass.

03-19-2004, 11:56 PM
