Default Crashed the Z

Well i havent exactly had the extra time to put up the post but in april i did a track day at willow springs at wrecked my Z. A few days ago i broke my foot so now i have nothing but time to sit on the computer.

Went to the track with a bunch of friends and just happened to find the guy behind me caught it on his go pro. unfortunately i dont know how to load a video on here and it wont load to my photo bucket for a link. got on the gas a little too hard coming out of turn 3 up at willow springs international raceway and slid off the track, went up and over a dirt burm, got air born, went through a chain link fence, and came down nose first into another dirt barrier.


I did not take a whole bunch of pictures but these are some that i did get.










The Z has been at the body shop since the 21st of april and is almost ready to come home, now i broke my left foot so i wont even be able to drive it when it comes home, o well still want to see it back in my driveway. Not exactly how i wanted to get a new paint job but im pretty excited for it.


Edit:

ya the crash actually happened about 2 months ago so im starting to get over the bummed feeling, that and ive already paid for all the replacement parts, so the wallet attacks have stopped. lol just cant wait to get her back, especially since i decided to buy a bunch of new goodies while the car was down.

Sorry to hear about this, but as long as you're ok, then it's all good. Cars can be replaced - people can't.

Can you upload the vid to youtube?

I don't know how to upload to YouTube? Do I need an account or anything? I'm not the greatest with a computer.

Glad you were not injured in the wreck - the car can be fixed. Tough luck that you broke your foot - hope it heals soon and you can get back behind the wheel.

No question...it could have been a lot worse. I hope it comes back better than ever and your foot heals quickly.

Sorry to hear. But like others have said, your body is more important than your car. And look on the bright side - you'll never overcook turn #3 ever again.

Yes, you need a YouTube account to upload videos. Not hard to sign-up with an account. Too bad about the car, but it will be fixed up well it sounds like.

If you are willing to edit the video I can email it to you. My
Buddy cropped the video down to about a minute for me using the gopro software since it was about 20 minutes long. Ill have to ask around and see if someone is willing to come show me how to use YouTube. I had a gopro
On my car but it didn't record or corrupted cause it wasn't on the disk. (Those cameras sure can take a beating I was pretty impressed. It got ripped off by the chain link fence and found it about 150ft from the car, cleaned the dirt off and it still works flawlessly)

Ya turn 3 ate a few cars that day. While I was trying to get mine on the trailer from where it crashed I turned and caught a brz lose control and hit the inside burn and flipped and rolled twice before landing back on its wheels.
Put the whole thing into perspective.

For YT you just make an account and upload. MP4 files work the best. AVI are the best quality, but they take a lot of time to upload + YT decreases the quality a ton. It's only 30 FPS even if your video is 60 FPS. That's the only bad thing about YT. My email is (Pistols@outlook.com)
