Just crashed my r34 $$=+*^?

Lucky escape for me and kids but the car is front ended.

All because of a Nintendo dsi.!

Went to a industrial estate Nr stoke on Trent down a long windy road to a repairer for play stations etc as my youngest broke the top screen.

I went there for a quote on Saturday and was told 40. So said I won't bother.
Then got an email today saying 30.
So I think bargain.

I finished work collected the dsi and the kids from school.

Now the road it's on is very muddy with lorries and the like (chemical lane as locals will know it).

Obviously took my time. (Kids in).

At the end of the road after dropping the dsi off there's a slip road onto the A500, in 3rd gear to join traffic (it's about 4,30pm so getting fairly busy).


Back spun up as turned into a 10-15 car gap and lost it. 40 mph tops.

Sorry guys, I can assure you all I wasn't being a dick, anyone that knows me will varify.

The car will be a right off I'm sure.
The kids are ok thank fook.

No more skylines for me,too close for comfort.

Kids + skyline don't mix as I do the school run. So will have to go. Not worth it any more.

Holy crapbags! Sorry to hear this mate. The important thing is that you and your kids are ok. How did the front gets smashed if you lost the back? Full 360 into the central reservation?

Sorry to see that, did the traction control not try to help out? Someone backed into the front of mine on Saturday night, dented the bonnet and scratched my bumper. Was feeling a bit upset, but your car puts my minor scrape into perspective.

Just let go no warning, bloody thing.

Never since I've owned did it do that before. Not even in winter ice and snow.

I won't be able to afford insurance due next Easter time that's for sure.

Those fiat 500's look nice. ;-(
