Video: Guy Almost Totals EVO 8 on Black Ice January 05 2012, 0 Comments
I've been in similar situations and it's scary as hell to see and experience something like this! Could have been a lot worst for this guy and his EVO! For the driver's comments and explanation of the ordeal, click here -->
This storm came out of nowhere. Weather was clear 15 seconds before the video started. I let go of the gas to slow down instead of braking in the beginning of the video.I knew i was driving too fast and braking would not have been a good idea. Beginning of this film is when I pushed the record button on the camera. You can hear me shut off the radio. My wipers aren't even on yet. I braked at 00:4 when i saw the accident, only to realize that it was useless so i let go of them completely and regain control. I got out of the car to check for damage after I drove past the accident area. about a mile down the road. I must have seen at least 15 damaged cars left and right. Filmed on highway 77 North. I am NOT on summer tires. This Evo is a North Carolina car. There are no reasons for me to be on winter tires. I do not have a crash beam because my IC is too large for one. I am buying a daily driver for winter driving. Thats not a tennis ball. Thats a Subaru get more g's ball in the passenger side window It does have a evo 9 bumper. My "ricer" with green rims is fully built pushing 500AWHP Despite the "little" damage that was done to the car, I am very happy that i did not hit anyone or get hit by that semi. My car would've been totaled and I might have not been here to post this video. Drive Safe!
