    i guess im glad it went out like this, instead of gettin jacked then stripped to shit.

    story goes: i was holdin a pretty hard left hand turn on a banked road. doin 65-70 (no bs) and the front left hit the center line paint and it slid and started twords the bottom of the bank, and i tryed to correct it and when i turned the wheel it pulled me straight off the top edge, and i cleared the ditch and hit the other side and then rolled to the bottom of the hill, i guess im pretty fuckin lucky

    While you have it apart, you should address the rust issues in the rear bumper.

    Right, I'm sure hitting that slippery, evil strip of paint was totally what caused this accident. The fact that you were going way too fast for the turn you were on had nothing to do with it... :roll:

    may i correct you?

    crx's are no longer the "smallest", thanks to whoever created these damn things, I do believe the "smart car" is now the smallest.

    now. maybe if you said honda's smallest production car. I believe the crx was the smallest am i right?

    or am i incorrect as well?

    ok bud... you know cuz you were there right?.....:roll: ya i was driving hard, not anything ive never done before, especially cuz i drive that turn just about everyday, the day before i was pushin 80+ through it. look at the tires.... i can tell you they were cold, no where near operating temperature... so think what you want you'll never no til it happens to you. my friend had somethin simmilar happen, and i dint completely belive that paint could do that. then it did....so like i said, you wont know what it can really do til its too late. really do you think i would push my own car that speant lots of time and money on to its limits to roll...? no! no one would, it was somewhat out of my conrol, i shouldnt of gotten close to the paint i know, but after i hit it there was nothin i could do.....

    thats the thing, i do have experiance, i was not doin excesive speeds by any means, for the car or myself, my friend was driving it the day before, and he was beatin the piss out of it around corners, andwhen i told him he didnt belive me till he saw the car.... it was out of my control once i got on the paint... yes i should of stayed away i know that. and if i could go back i would change that... but i cant

    Does anyone intend to crash their car??? No, obviously not. It still wasn't "out of your control" as you say.

    Speed limits are in place for a reason. Let's assume for a minute that your car is completely capable of handling that curve at the speeds you were driving, and that slipping on the paint (unlikely, in my opinion) was the sole reason for your crash. If you hadn't been driving aggressively and speeding to would you have still wiped out on the painted stripe? Probably not.

    This was YOUR fault, period. Man up and accept some responsibility for it. I have ZERO sympathy for you here...

    this isnt nascar dude..im damn sure your car was not setup to do this..
    so take your lying/contradicting ass out of here

    EDIT!! oh and the paint strip isnt smooth,its the same contour of the road.so dont blame this on the paint,its all in your hands
