    tough week

    well i was taking my wifes 07 vette vert in for service,getting on the highway when car hydroplaned--i wasnt even going fast maybe 35, road was wet, slid onto the grasss\, and all the training ive had in handling a spin went out the window as i slid100ft on the grass into the road barrior--pretty damn scary--- if you saw the pics you woder how i walked away,,Frame was bent, and state farm was great--totalled the car and gave me more than its worth by alot--just glad i wasnt hurt--being an engineer, im amazed at how the force of the collision with the barrier was diffused by the frame, and of cousre the 30 ft of rail i took out--oh well, had to vent a little here

    Glad to see nobody got hurt. Do you plan on replacing it with the new stingray?
