    So I hit a curb got a flat and didn't have a lug wrench... So I borrowed this chicks 1990 Toyota Camry. Damn do I miss my car. I wasn't even fucking around, I was driving through a CVS parking lot and slid into the curb

    I hit the curb at like 5-8 mph and I wasn't going to stand in the blizzard to check it out, maybe I'll be lucky and just have a flat or a bent rim.


    This blows, my car is like 35 miles away and I'm driving a Toyota Camry.

    I could care less about the rim or the tire. The rims were already curbed...I just don't want it bent.

    I was only doing 8 mph on ice (it clearly read 12 km/h on the digital display)....slid into and up the curb, came down on the oil pan. I was sliding on a slight angle and just clocked the wheel so the wheels were aiming towards the curb before I hit it so I didn't damage the suspension and had a better chance of bending a rim.


    I got new front tires and sealed the oil pan as a temp (I just ordered a used one for $36).

    AWD is a lot better in the snow an rain. On ice it's pointless, ABS defenitly didn't help either.

    Nice. Load up the car and go sliding in a parking lot.

    Besides that, I KNOW your suspension - how goddam fast do you need to be going to get that car to slide ? [​IMG]
