Default What happens when you let a friend use your car...

Today, I let my friend have a go of my car - the most regretful decision I have ever made.
I was drifting on my driveway, and he wanted a go so I thought he can't be too S***?

Within 30 seconds he crashed into my stairs at speed dinging my bonnet and dinging the front grill area on my scooby
It made me want to cry after the time I had spent getting my car perfect. everything was right.

I will NEVER! EVER! LET A FRIEND USE MY CAR AGAIN!

For everyone else out there, don't make the same mistake as I did!
Don't let your stupid F****** friends touch what they can't afford!
It's one of the worst mistakes I have made.

Man that sucks.. everytime friends and little kids come around asking me for a go I simply say "go buy your own" not because I don't want to let them drive it.. well kinda.. but mostly because the don't know how to drive it.... and most likely won't buy the parts they're almost guaranteed to brake after they brake it..
Well... we all learn from mistakes...

OMG, I'm so glad you brought up this thread. I'm a teacher and during my lunch and nutrition break, I drift in my classroom. By the way, classroom tiles are perfect fro drifting. Anyway, I'm a nice guy and let some kids who have experience drive my car. Well, some of the other kids get sad because they want to have fun too so I say, okay.

After two seconds, the throttle it into a desk dinging my brand new RX 7 shell and messing up my servo. I had to change servos. It's one in the moring and I have been having fun working on my cars but when they have fun with it and break it, its my butt that is up at night fixing their mistakes.

At least when I break it, I know it's my fault and I look forward to getting it fixed ASAP. However, when someone else breaks it, I'm not motivated to fix someone's else's mistake on MY CAR.

So sorry mate but it happens to all of us. It had to happen to you sometime or else you would've let anyone use your car.

Take care.

Thanks buddy. I need RCs to help keep me relaxed. It's stressful when the kids crash but when they get a sweet drift locked at the perfect angle, it makes it all worth it.

zomg i wish my teachers would go for that, my school has soo many nice places to slide inside but none of my teachers would go for it.


some computer radios have a throttle control dealio. like you can set your full throttle to only be 50% of its full potential. great for when you let inexperienced people drive. then again no one has ever driven my car besides me and my dad.
