No thankfully. She was a little dirty, but all is well!

good to hear.

had a bit of bad luck myself. ran over a metal block goin 70 down the interstate yesterday. bent and cracked my wheel and blew my tire. im glad the tire failed safe and i was able to remain in control and didnt spin out. I'll admit, I was pissed and heartbroken. i dont come across 18x9.5 +12 Work emotion CR Kai's often.

Similar to above I drove over a big 2x4 and blew the passenger tire. Luckily no rim damage just really heart broken putting my car through that.

I'm glad you're good brother! That damage can be fixed and isn't so bad.

Happy to hear you are safe! That is a serious bummer though.

Thats sucks man sorry to see this I hope you can get this wheel fixed thatís not a cheap wheel, but it could have been worse than a wheel, youíre safety first!!!

After spinning out a few weeks back and damaging few components like tie rod ends, wheels, radiator, and support I learned to respect the power and handling of our scs in a dry and especially in wet conditions and drive speed limit or under
this way itís safer for others as well and you give them a chance to check out your jdm beauty not preaching bro!!

Finally received our personalized plates after 8 months of waiting! The first one got denied, it was "OGSTATS" so go figure. LMAO

I put in a remanufactured steering rack, figs engineering solid bushings, new tie rod ends, new high pressure ps line, aligned the car and went for a test drive. After I finished cleaning the garage and putting all my tools away, I drove the car into the garage and blew a seal on the new rack.

I got new front control arm bushings, steering rack, sway bar links, and custom painted fog lights installed. We also welded the crack in my header and now my exhaust sounds decent. It's sounded like a crunchy old lawn mower before.
