    Yeh she's fucked, one engine now available!

    And while it's easy to play the arm chair expert.....is it just me or does he look to correct it a bit too much "RWD style" rather than "AWD style".....e.g. point the wheels where you want to go and plant it rather than go for too much opposite lock then have it grab and spear off in the wrong direction?

      I found on the gravel in sport you still need a bit of oppy to get it where you want it. But not as much as RWD.

        Yeh just looks like he was sliding with the wheels pointing to the inside of the corner, then slams on the lock to correct and ends up getting whipped in to the sand trap. As I said, easy to commentate from the sidelines plus I've never driven one. Didn't even look that quick until he hit the sand and went cartwheeling! :o

          It does look like a major over correction.

            I shouldn't laugh, but the whole circle jerk kind of makes it inevitable. At Lakeside today, going in to the track, not even on the track, a Yarifag ran up the arse of his Yarifag mate going in to the tunnel at 5kmh. Both need bumpers.

              There are definitely a group of people who own these things that don't have much driving experience. Much like the WRX was I guess.
              I did see a guy asking in the FB group for a front bumper, but looks like he's in VIC, so can't laugh at him... damn...

                cars like these make ordinary drivers overnight fangios until it really goes fucking wrong. My rex is the same, you have to be doing something utterly retarded to get out of shape past the cars capability.

                  Same as a lot of m drivers and leased amg’s though.
                  not necessarily a bad thing as it gets them into Motorsport etc but yeah we will see a few more binned I would say

                      Saw the damage on the white one, and started talking to the owner, then he told me what happened and showed me his mates car. Fair bit of damage to both cars really.

                        How did they bump in the tunnel? As guido says it’s like 5kph

                          Did they still run on the day or sit out? The plastics on the front and rear bumper is crazy thin and really flexible. I can imagine with a simple/slow nose to tail the damage wouldn't be small.

                          Hopefully you guys (Cal, Guido etc) will head along to the next Skid Control motokhana too, I'm going to try and go too.

                                Both still ran the day. Mainly cosmetic damage, although the guy with the rear end damage couldn't open his boot because of how borked the rear bar was.

                                I was doing the Sprints that day, but could be keen for a run at the next Motorkhana pending availability.
