car is hurt pretty bad. i have had several frame guys look at it and got some estimates. it looks like it will be cheaper to find a body and install new cage and transfer all my stuff over.

So what was the root cause of it making such a hard left? I saw in another post you just redid some stuff to reduce your 60', something let loose? Sorry about your car, that has to suck.

I've been there, except I rolled. It sucks awful.

Im back and racing all the time.

The ONLY thing that matters is you were not hurt. Foxes are everywhere.

If anyone gives you crap about wrecking just say what I did..."Where is your 9 sec car...oh I'm sorry you dont have one."

Good luck!!!

Anyone can sit in the stands and talk s**t. Get out there and RACE!!!

Glad to see everyone is OK. Sucks to see nice rides wrecked. To fix it quick and cheap, cut the front off at the strut tower and tube the front of the car. Will take off some weight and fix the damage from the wreck.
