  • The chassis rails are bent it's possibly a repairable write off, but I'm not getting it back and repairing it


    Thanks dude, yeah I'm fine, shit happens,

    I bought a shit daily on sunday to get to work swap all the good bits off my car with other S15 owners for cash

    And I'll buy an S13 in January and get back out on the track

    • It's good to know you're still looking ahead and not giving up.
      Will look forward to any future purchase of yours, be it an S13 or non-S-Chassis vehicle!

      • Cheers dude. As I said shit happens, was my first time out on the track and I really enjoyed it so I can't give up now

        As you know I was planning on getting an RX7, but I think a cheap s13 Silvia to work on for track use is more practical and alot more fun

        • RX7's are beautiful. They seem to be the car that every JDM fan would own, if they had the money for fuel/constant servicing. Damn rotaries need a lot of upkeep.

          • True they are expensive to run

            I could afford it,


            But Having a car I could use on the track would be more fun I only drive 20km a day to work and never use my car on the weekend so it's seems slightly pointless to pay for a loan for an RX7 that will barley be used

            • Fuark, that's a bummer dude. Keen to see how your future S13 turns out though.
              Did you hit a barrier or something?

              And here i was thinking the skidpan was the safe option.

                Write-off = damage equalling 50% or more of the vehicle's agreed value, or damage extending over certain measurements. My Lancer wasn't a write-off with $8,000 damage, because it was worth 23.

                    Yeah I hit the concrete wall

                    It's the safer option, but nothing is 100% safe otherwise you wouldn't have to wear a helmet

                      It's a write off cause there's no insurance for use on the track and I can't afford to fix it

                      So the finance company sold it at pickles auctions

                        • It's at pickles auctions

                          Apparently $3500 engine and gear box are perfect

                          No damage at all

                          • I can't even imagine the feeling of having to write off an S15. Glad you're staying positive and thinking of the good times you were able to have that night before it happened. That's what it's all about man.

                            • reading about that 15 made me feel sick inside, nothing feels worse then wrecking your pride and joy out on the track, but racing is racing and it happens to the best of us, me personally wouldn't risk taking a 15 out for any reason just because of the value in the car iv seen to many casuals in my time, i skidded my 14 for 2 years straight when i lived in qld and even tho i never smacked it i still had plenty of close calls and gravel rash =/
