car is off the road now. Can't drive it in the state it is.
Rear axle and rear arb are knackered. Steelies were absolutely totalled. Suspension on the offside has gone completely.
I didn't hit anyone else and managed to direct it away from the traffic coming on the roundabout.
Steering rack is good though so managed to save something at least.

Already got suspension and wheels for it. ARB i said to terry ill have his now just hunting for a rear axle.

thankfully yeah.

If it hadn't been for all the alloys in the back the car would have flipped. The Towbars picked up dirt it was that bent over.

hit diesel/oil on a roundabout. The police reckon it was diesel as that was what did the focus. Good thing they weren't far behind me.

Was that the roundabout with the police car and ambo in it? I wondered what they were doing there if it was. Would have been nice if they put some cones or something around it :banghead: :banghead:

Sorry to hear about the car though and glad your both ok

nah no ambulance for us there was another one that happened at roughly the same time.
There was only 2 police cars with us and we had signs put out as we were facing the wrong way on the slip road onto the roundabout.

oh my! Glad to hear your both ok! :)

Sometimes i felt i was screwed cause the xr2i felt slippy, methinks alloys with grippy tyres will be bought forward on the list! :doh:

Was hoping you would enjoy the exhaust when i floored it past you ;)

Good meet, for those who helped (pretty much everyone) and Dawn for relay/switches/metal polish :teehheee:
Thankyou very much, when the blowers worked i was so relieved! :thumbsup:

And Sam's sausage picture was :lolz: Terry had a big smile on :lol:
