Ouch! I expected something like that to happen given how close the driver was to those cones. Hopefully the damage wasn't too severe, although it sounded pretty bad.

"Don't worry, I can fix it. My Dad is a television repairman, he has the ultimate set of tools." It'll buff right out.

Unhappy

FULL LENGTH FEATURE


What’s even more bizarre is that this IS-F is LHD... How can you miscalculate the line of sight so badly, when its in your favor.. ..

FYI - The sidewalk BUMP stops are there to protect pedestrians on a daily basis..

I would say HEAVY damage would be isolated to Left Front Drivers wheel / suspension, bumper cover clips and light denting to underbody metals under driver's seat..

Love the REAL brake set up on this Gazoo Racing IS-F..
