XB Coupe Vs Nissan Silvia (Crash)

Well this is my first post hope it all goes well.


Me and a mate were at a car yard, he was looking at a poofy skyline and I was just tagging along. We started talking then this V8 started up, looked around theres this XB coupe with supercharger out the bonnet. Just sitting there rumbling away. The sales guy comes out and shows us this skyline, then all of the sudden the XB hits full revs and launches directly towards his silvia. The silvia hits the shed, the XB still at full revs does a HUGE burnout and the rest is pretty much history.

Re: XB Coupe Vs Nissan Silvia (Crash)

this is exactly what happened


Quote:
Well after 2 years and many $ my pride and joy has been bought undone by a $32 linkage. So i thought i would post a small warning, its fine to get Horses out of you metal power plant, but also a good idea to make sure you can stop it on command as well. What you see here is the result of a small 4.5 inch throttle rod (the good stuff *Expensive*) arm can produce for you when you get a mechanical failure. This small rod broke between the thread and the "Rose Joint" which bolts to the carby arm on one of the 750s. Of course you cant expect this to happen on only quarter throttle or even half throttle, nooooooo, it waited till Full throttle and decided to jam didnt it.

Of course i cant blame the Throttle arm for all the problems.

Problem 1 Transmission stall testing and Break staging the car without having the car chained down in the workshop.
Problem 2 : After nearly being at Half throttle and lifting my foot off the pedal to find out the pedal is still where it was DONT STAB THE THROTTLE to try and free it LIKE I DID.
Problem 3 : Even with 800 HP (NOS was switched off) 35 meters wasnt a real long time to get myself out of ANY bad situation that MAY have arised.
Problem 4 : ALWAYS put your Harnes or seatbelt on, even if testing.

Out come:

My car launched full power and i had no way of stopping it. Yes i got the engine shut off before the Impact happened but it was all too late.

Damage : My car $4000
Black Sylvia : $10,000 (The "Other" car was a write off)
Rebuild Side of Shed : $1800

So after launching my car full throttle into the back of a sylvia then hitting the car that hard it pushed it through and out the corner of the shed this is the out come of a bad bad day indeed.
And to add insult to injury the young guys sylvia was only 2 weeks old (Of which i payed him the full amout for his car after 2 weeks) and repaired the the shed, now its time to fix my car. After the carnage was over i looked back on this instance and thought the sylvia saved my car from alot of damage, I didnt even break my Engine or Trans cooler, but the sylvia was a hit that hard it blew the windows out of it, and creased the roof.


Good things that came out of this : ........ noone got hurt.


This side doesnt look to bad
here are the pics

Re: XB Coupe Vs Nissan Silvia (Crash)

Even damaged, that's one beautiful, mean looking XA Coupe.

Good to hear know one was hurt and he has managed rise above it all and learn something useful from this bad experience. These things happen for a reason. Just maybe it was fate reminding him that he has built a seriously powerful weapon, which demands to be handled and treated with respect at all times.

Cheers,
Colville

Re: XB Coupe Vs Nissan Silvia (Crash)

See what happens when you mix up chev parts into a Ford...they go into self destruct mode, its too embarasing for them.

seriously, what a bastard that would be, I feel for the owner.

Lucky no-one was standing between the two cars or the car and the shed.
