    I remember when this happened there were closeup images of the throttle linkage ciculating.
    After seeing those pics I was pretty sure it jammed open. It was such a shit setup.

      I don't understand; can you explain this in more detail?

        Pretty sure he’s saying nobody is innocent, hence there are no innocent bystanders, when fish &/or it’s price is involved.
        Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

          Yep.

          He probably failed the attitude test upon being questioned about who did the work. Does his own work, because all qualified mechanics are shit, etc.

              I doubt it would have made any difference if the car was built by F1 engineers. At the end of the day he did a stupid thing in a stupid place and shit went south. Do I think the throttle jammed? I actually do, it's actually possible that the cable pulling from an angle could have caused the throttle blade or shaft to stick. Even if it jammed at 1/4 throttle that would be enough to cause big problems in that car.
              Would the crash have occured if it was a brand new, bog stock VF HSV GTS? Possibly yes if all other factors were exactly the same. Would the ultimate outcome been the same? Probably not, that depends if ol'mate figured where his brain was in time.

                Outcome pretty much 12mths on the dot. There was another formal gathering down there last night and heaps of cool cars about, funnily enough they were all sensible enough not to go dropping massive skids and crash in to buildings (the cops also did a couple of laps to keep an eye on things, shock!!)

                  ""I also find that the defendant operated the vehicle in a manner which was dangerous including, despite his denials, that he did a burnout."

                  So there's dashcam footage and external video, and he still claims he didn't do a burnout........fucking idiot.

                    He didn't, the car did when the poorly engineered throttle jammed wide open.
