    Got in a fight with a couple oak trees, my harnesses/seats/safety equipment did their job like a champ and I didn't get a scratch. Bright side is that means its time for a new build! My drivetrain and most of my suspension is still good, there's just too much body damage to be worth repairing.

    Once we put spares on I was actually able to drive the car into and out of the trailer on the way to the shop.

    Also now we know a couple things:
    The FTR tubular front bumper is stronger than an oak tree
    The FTR watts link can take a full side impact that sends a car flying through the air and come out completely undamaged.

    I'm going to part out the car to start a new build, here's everything i'm selling: http://www.sn95forums.com/showthread.php?66335-Performance-and-stock-parts


    Oh, and pics of course!

    My jaw just hit the table..... Very very sad but I'm going to stay positive and say I look forward to seeing what you build next. This is a serious bummer though.

    I've never seen anyone that seems so... Happy about wrecking their car. It's almost as if you wanted to wreck it to check the durability of those parts! Lol I kid but really glad you're okay and safety equipment functioned as it should

    Oh man, bummer. That looks like something serious failed.

    was it part failure? Or did you try and avoid something?

    It only got tested on my own little private testing area.

    Yes I'm considering myself really blessed to walk away with all my parts (body and car) intact

    Brakes locked up early, shitty tires I guess

    Glad to hear you came out of that without a scratch! That is pretty remarkable, but as you said 'safety features' are designed for a reason.
    Any plans for a replacement car?

    Holy shit dude, that sucks. I hope I wasn't influence in this LOL

    Stuff seems strong minus the wheels. I've seen replica wheels hit walls at 90mph before and just barely bend, but so far I've seen two crashed cars on this forum with replica Mustang wheels and they've both shattered.

    Haha. Next car will either be a new edge or an early s197 with a built 4v 5.0 stroker on a 4.6 aluminum block. Fully tubed nascar style SLA front clip from the firewall forward
