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.

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..
