Tony I am terribly sorry to hear of what happend to you.. I am however very glad that you were un-harmed. Your car was no doubt beautiful, but as they say cars can be replace.. people can not. Again, sorry to hear about your accident.. but I am happy that you are ok. Just caught up with you on AIM so I will talk to you on there.

These cars are not very stable at all. Sorry to hear that. But next time man you gotta let off instead of staying in it.
they are as stable as it gets when you put extra XXX hp/trq on top
