I was driving up and down 17 yesterday in the rain. thank God those accidentSSSS didn't happen on my side while I was driving. While I was going do 17, one car flipped on north bound. On my way back up, there was a 3-4 car accident on south bound. Even when I was driving, my tail came out a few time. And I wasn't even going fast. I was going speed limit on them turns. :eek: I was trying to avoid sudden braking by leaving A LOT of room. But people just LOVE to cut in front of me and leave very little room for me. :mad: anyway, just watch out people!

What tires are you driving on if I may ask? If you have cash to invest in some tires, get a set. It could save your car and mostly your life.

I am riding on RE92s. :lol: I do have a set of Falkens Azenis. But I don't think they'll do any better than the RE92s. :) I drive pretty slow in the rain, I think I'll be okay. I mean, this is not my first year driving in the rain. :p Thank God for rallyx school! :D Those few times when my tail end came out a bit was predictable and under control.

dude did you get new tires or something? You should be able to do it with them tires you got there! :lol: jz, I am disappointed in you. After watching all these Initial D I would you've learn something. Remember AE86 vs EG6? It's all about weight transfer buddy! :lol:

Crazy driving out there today. I can see 580 from my apartment and it was packed ALL day. Lots of accidents. I even saw an overturned pickup on 24 Westbound around noon. Good luck and GO AWD!!!

shit someone almost hit me just 30 minutes ago on 580. I was on the right and he was on the left. and he decided to switch into my lane in front of me!! He would have clipped me if I didn't brake. I saw him coming too close already so I had just enough time to brake.. :mad:

not very fast. it's on the passenger rear side. you can't really tell. the estimate came out to be 800 bucks! but they are paying for everything so it's all good. :)
