    Roads were fairly wet. Just had a big brief burst.

    This area of I25 has major pot holes and lane ruts. My S4 and Wrangler both trammel in that area. Iíll bet he get into the ruts and trammeled and lost the back end.

    That or he was fucking around blasting and won a stupid prize for the stupid game.

    Knowing the area - itís a piece of shit part of the road.

    i25 north, just north of E470, before highway 7 into Erie

    that stretch of road SUCKS. I you're not paying attention you could be in trouble (not saying anything about this particular driver but I'm guilty of occasionally taking my eyes off the road)

    I'd be pretty annoyed if I had just wrecked my car and somebody decides to take pics and post them online so everyone can critique what I'm wearing and how my shoe choice led to the accident. Chances are he knows he screwed up - I've been in his position too (just not with an R8). One of the many reasons having a nice car would likely be far less glamorous than it seems.

    Sorry I took your pics man. It was more about empathy than it was anything. I cringed and tried to stop to see if you needed a ride.

    Was more of a reminder to everyone else to stay safe out there. I would have cracked on you about the flip flops and socks if the highway patrol wouldnít have waved me past and you needed a ride.








    Yes. Sucks balls for that dude. Most of us have been there in some form or fashion.

    This was a Stasis supercharged V8 R8. I know it very well. Owner was driving and hydroplaned after a sudden downpour. And whats wrong with flip flops? I drive my RS4 (manual) in flip flops all the time.

    Sounds right. That part of I25 sucks. Glad heís ok. Easy for me to say - but itís ďjust stuffĒ and it can be replaced (or not). But he wasnít hurt.


    Itís the socks.
