Default another subaru bites it...

i'm posting this for Dave Carey(MBX Motorsports)

"I was on the levy's south of the canal in S. Chesapeake City, MD. My cousin
was in his car behind me. We were going out to the cliffs at the end of the
canal. The roads, as you may know, are made of loose gravel.

We were traveling at about 25-30MPH (proof of that is my car was still in
2nd gear after the incident) I took a right hand turn uneventfully (no
drifting or sliding) and looked behind me to check for my cousin in his car.
When I looked back in front of me, I noticed that I had drifted toward the
right hand side of the road (next to the cliff that leads into the canal
itself). So, I took evasive action and pulled to the left, a bit too hard
actually, and put the car into a full on slide. Now, I try to recover from
the slide to no avail. Realizing that it's hopeless to straighten the car
out again, I turn away from the spin and slam down the accelerator to force
a 180 and stop the car. That was my mistake .... little did I know, but soon
found out, there was a ditch about 1.5ft deep running perpendicular to the
road.

As the car began to cross the narrow road, the front right wheel and side
skirt made their way into the ditch. At that very moment, I just knew this
was going to be horrible. The car instantly pitched hard to the left and
began to roll over. I distinctly remember saying aloud, "This is going to
suck." just as the car began it's rapid descent into oblivion.

After coming to rest, I was facing the opposite direction I was headed and
back on my wheels again. The car had turned another 90 degrees in the roll
and made it completely around and back on its wheels.

Injury report:
very stiff neck and left shoulder where the seatbelt said, "You aren't
moving buddy" and a sore back. My right hand hit the ground through the
sunroof and I have a small cut and bruise, but that's about it. I will be
going to my doctor later on this week for a real damage report, but I feel
rather well considering.

Damage Report:
Both rear quarters are bashed in, passenger door doesn't close right,
passenger side skirt is gone, passenger side of the roof is severely
traumatized as well as the rest of it. Rear window, windshield and rear
passenger window are completely toast. Blown front right wheel and massive
suspension damage to that same wheel as far as I can tell. Lotsa glass and
an ample amount of dirt now reside in my once meticulously clean interior.
Tons of scratches small dings and dents every where else. surprisingly, the
front of the car, the hood and engine didn't take any of the damage at all.
Even the stock coupe spoiler made it away rather unscathed (aside from
scratches). The rear passenger wheel makes the car look like it has 4 wheel
steering as there is something definitely wrong there as well.

Alas, at least I'm ok, that's more important than the car. I took pictures
and will have them developed tonight so everyone can see the death of my
2.5RS.

I'm pretty sure the car is going to be totaled out. It's probably a good
thing as it will never be the same again, but I still want it back I
have to wait and see what the insurance adjuster says today. Hopefully this
won't be as bad as I'm anticipating it to be financially."

i hope everything works out for u, dave!

jet,

i emailed dave w/ my condolences. I know exactly how he feels right now. Like i told him, the important part is that he's alive and well!

The word came back on my wrx, and it's also totalled. now that dave's is gone too, sad sad day

If you talk to him again, please let him know I give him my best. Have him give me a call or something when he's ready to begin his search for a new car. I've got to start looking too...

Sorry to hear it. I wonder if you lifted off the throttle when you first turned to the left. That would have lightened the back end and induced the spin.

Hey sorry to hear about the accident. But can you help me out...


How much would you want for the front struts,springs and upper mounting brackes for them? If the car is totalled that is and if they are in any kind of good shape. I need em for my XT6 that will be converted over from air-suspension to non-air.
