Default Baja down

Some of you may have noticed my disappearance around mid-march. Well, I had a run-in with a tree. I crested a hill on a narrow debris-strewn road and the rear of the baja broke loose on me, I counter steered but within half a second I had collided with a tree. The Baja, Turbo prodction number 4, was a total loss. I had a small bruise on my shins from my feet sliding off the pedals and hitting the driver's side kick panel. The car did it's job and sacrificed herself to save me. The schroth street legal harnesses also worked well, preventing my head from hitting the jesus handle. The hat i was wearing flew off my head, out the window, and 15 feet down the road.

Cause: driving too fast for conditions only a few mph above posted limit but the crappyness of the road should've clued me in.
Car: Total Loss
Driver: Unharmed, no passengers.

No, i didn't take anything from the car, but I have 2 whiteline sways for baja turbo, all other 'stockpiled' parts are gone.

Here are a few pictures:





I screwed up and paid the price.
