all i know is that this is my second 3000 but my first vr4....and yesterday i beat an SS.
so my ride was into NTB to have a wicked shake in the driver side front wheel. They checked it out and found that it needed a new lower control arm bushing. great...so they put it in then full suspension inspection, alignment, balancing etc. so i took it out for a drive and brought it back insisting that it hadn't been fixed. the guy puts it back up on the rack looks at it agian and then proceeds to tell me that i don't my car and i don't know what i'm talking about.
her last run.
so i'm runnin with an nsx(don't know mods) but i hit about 130 sitting about 2 cars behind and gaining fast. a slight easy right bend in the road and then it happens. the strut collapsed. my ass end comes loose(clockwise) because the car sinks to the left. i try to compensate with a slight counter clockwise turn of the wheel. then the wheel stops turning so it becomes a pivot point and slingshots me 180 going backwards and sideways 130 mph into the concrete median. it was all in slow motion. but the impact of the car hitting brought the entire driver side of the car a good 3 feet off the ground. and she's gone. just some whiplash and a shitty day came out of it....oh yeah and my new ride. its a 98 nissan 240sx....yes its getting a full silvia s14 conversion. the problem now is proving that it was the work that they failed to do caused the accident. it was the upper strut bushing that failed.
