had some bad luck.

Accidentally hit a fox at 100kp/h last night .... went under my front left wheel, cracked my front bottom spoiler and totally wiped out my left driving light.

Pretty bummed. $480 to repair.
Some wheel therapy will fix that...but right now my XRT is at the repair workshop getting some brace made to fix it. I feel naked without it.

Bloody hell.

All that because of a vermin fox.

Re: had some bad luck.

And people think the banning of fox hunting in England is a good thing, see what they have to look forward to? lol.

Sorry for swearing admin....but seriously...i'm pretty angry with the fools, possibly my ancestors, who tried to make this country in the UK many years ago. Rabbits / Foxes / Blackbirds ... i reckon i've hit more of each than i have any roo or fat-bat.

Venomxr6t.
Know how you feel but you put up with such things in the country. I hit a v large hare at ...ahem somewhat more than 100 in my T. Stupid thing ran off the road then came back again-collected dead centre with a large spray of fur & bodily fluid & bits. Expected the worst but was amazed at the strength of the front bar. No damage aside from mangled number plate and a I/C full of fur. The farm mutts enjoyed the roadkill. XR6T-1, hare-nil.

Re: had some bad luck.

Truck retreads are the killer for me. Hit one in the TS50, 1 driving light and some paint $500. But worse I hit a big one in the rain a few weeks back in the Typhoon, cracked the front bar, whole thing needs to be replaced $3600!! Gotta love it.

Re: had some bad luck.

yeah those radials are lethal.....hit one of those in my first ever car....but it flipped straight off a bus and into the front of my little ricey Swift i had when I lived in Wollongong. (c'mon guys...this was 1996..and I was 17!)

Blew my front bar and number plate apart. Took spioler completely off.
They paid for it (bus company)...lucky.

Ouch...damage to the Typh?
Dude...that's gotta hurt.
