:cry::facepalm: Who cares about the dumb driver who doesn't know how to drive. What a beautiful car, nearly ruined.

Watchamacoolitt 08-02-2009 03:17 AM

So what caused the car to do that?

tom_vilsack 08-02-2009 04:35 AM

yikes...hope driver was ok? was 8 sec into speed,so was probably going a pretty good clip.

Matster 08-02-2009 05:53 AM

Broken axle?:iono: Something caused it to violently pull to the right.

myold88 08-02-2009 06:13 AM

I hope this Camaro owner is not to shocked when he finds out his insurance company will not cover the damages !. Coverage while racing is excluded on most auto insurance policy coverage. Also liability coverage is denied if he injures anyone or does damage to someone elses property, etc. while engaged in racing. Keep this in mind guys.

Grandeos 08-02-2009 06:15 AM

Looks pretty self explanatory.... tires never grabbed... spun out from under him. :facepalm:

Ofcourse the insurance company will know this happened since Onstar called in the paramedics and they had paramedics at the track as well.. His insurance most definitely will not cover this incident. Looks like the passenger jumped out and is OK. Let's hope the driver is alright since he was closest to the wall at impact. It could have been a lot worse... Let's hope this isn't related to the shaft cracking problem people have been having. It could be that simply the wheels lost their grip.. We'll have to wait and see...There are a few members on here with a black camaro and orange stripes.. It probably is somebody in this forum.. Nobody should be judgmental on this person. He knew the risks of drag racing. At least it was in a controlled environment and on a track.

I really hope there is something more to it then that. If not this guy should NOT have a drivers licence let alone a Camaro SS. I've been on mine hard in all the various modes and even with everything turned off it has never, ever even came close to feeling like it might get away from me like that.

Imfishintx 08-02-2009 06:46 AM

That's why you avoid the water box on street tire's!!! It never hooked and he never got out of it,tire's were spinning the whole time!

nUcLeArEnVoY 08-02-2009 06:57 AM

Wow. I wasn't thinking so much a 'rookie' as a 'blundering imbecile' for even doing that without some experience. If he's dragged before, he would've made the run.

Matster 08-02-2009 07:07 AM

Equal torque to both rear wheels, spinning or not, should still equal a controllable straight ahead. I don't see him turn the front wheels. I guess I'm just a little confused:iono: Guess he should have left stabiltrac on

I noticed the same thing.... I don't know what he was thinking, if you spin em like that off the line youre done... Give up and wait for your next run....

rickerda 08-02-2009 07:25 AM

Rookie is not the word that comes to my mind. I saw guy do the same thing in a new Mustang GT, he still had 30 day temp tags on the car. I would go with lack of experience as a likely cause.

sigma_1966 08-02-2009 07:36 AM

Can we have a moment of silence for fallen SS......... and two moments of pity for the guy who wrecked it

Not if you don't back out of it soon enough.

Sir Nuke 08-02-2009 07:44 AM

I wonder what he said to On-Star when they called right after......."Are you ok, you A$$!!"

Xmicro_SS 08-02-2009 07:57 AM

It appears there was a loss of traction from the start, he should have left competition mode on, it would have prevented that from happening. Very Sad to see that beautiful car smashed like that. A lot of people do not realize that if you wreck at a track it is on your dime. Very Sad! Hope he did not get injured at least, but I bet his wallet is going to hurt for a long time! :facepalm:

sigma_1966 08-02-2009 08:14 AM

LOL

You're absolutely right about the insurance. :cry: :cry: :cry:
