I am now forever Bonded to my CAR!!

So I left my job on Bradford Dr. to go get some lunch; so I took research park to 565 east as usual. Also what usual, and My G and Z guys can probably agree with me on this, fishtailing in the rain. It happens to me all the time and Iím not even gassing it, but Iím pretty use to it. However today I completely lost control of the G. First fishtailed right so I lets of the gas, didn't press the brake and slight counter steered. thought I was in the clear, wrong, right after that It fishtailed back to the left harder than ever, felt like I was on ice and the car did a complete 360 on the highway. so itís me, my G, and me looking at oncoming traffic while still spinning so I said to myself best thing to do is try to take this to the grass.

long story short, even though she went out of control on me, I will forever love my G because after all that and being towed out of a ditch filled with water, the G came out without a scratch and cranked up like a an angry lion that wants revenge lol

Man, I'm glad to hear you're okay! Fishtailing can be downright scary, especially in weather like this. And for your G to be that good to you coming back without a scratch--yes, she's a keeper!

Yeah koreangrits hit a puddle the other night and skateboarded down the median, somehow not hitting anyone in 4 lanes of traffic but flattening her tires and breaking her wheels after a few donuts.

I no longer drive my Z in the rain.

That didn't sound fun either.

Glad to see you're alright man, above all else. I really like your G too so I'm glad to see it is unharmed as well.

Stay safe man! The water out today was incredible.

And it's not completely your fault...the roads here do a horrendous job of draining water. I don't know who they get to design and construct them but they are awful.

I think it's just because of the heavy rain. And you haven't seen this in India. I've seen a twenty minute downpour cause this:

Heh you don't want a truck. The back end will slide out from under you faster than your car does.

Dude, I feel your pain. I did this last year in my Z and still have the scars to show you on the front bumper. I hit a patch of slick water on a curve and around she went into a small ditch. Luckily like yours, she cranked back up and drove out of the ditch.

I'm sorry yours had it a bit worse hitting water and having to get towed. But I'm with you, as hard as I hit the ditch and the front bumper is the only thing that got hurt? I love my Z
