Pretty amazing that the tank didn’t explode into flames with that kind of impact.

We get it. You think your style bar looks cool.

Yeah, I've had the discussion of my actual thoughts with a few people here on the Forum but I did not want it to devolve into another one of my rants. Suffice it to say that loud pipes on motorcycles do not prevent traumatic brain injury caused when someone turns left in front of you.

These people weren't injured either.

That car had a bolt-in roll cage that punched through the floor pans in a freak accident. Its rare a car lands near perfectly square on its top. Wrecks are chaotic and are rarely ever the same.

I'm know the details of the car, that shop is in Tulsa and Hallett is my home track. CarFX (if they are still open) is a joke of a "shop."

But the person was reacting to the miata, so I was using that as an example, that crazy stuff happens and people don't get injured. Just like I'm sure we could find numerous low-speed, relatively calm looking incidents where people didn't make it.
