Angry Flew off the road..

We've all read the stories of someone gone of the road and seen the videos on YouTube. I know how to drive, this just happens to others... well.

I never drive the Viper when I'm not 100% fit, awake and ready. I never speed, it is properly maintained and the tires aren't old, I used to race go-carts, been it sport car schools (not Viper though) and still got bitten.

It was nice weather but only 50 F. After only 0.6 miles I passed a roundabout (gone straight - was the plan) but got too tempted on the gas it seem. Cold weather, cold tires. The rear broke loose and short swing to the right, then left and it got traction again. The only problem was that it then pointed towards a field. Exactly like all those YouTube videos where the guys go off the road when they accelerate on a straight and loose traction. I slipped/smashed down about 20 inches until I hit the field with no chance to get back on the road. Interestingly I stayed totally calm during the whole thing and I never stopped and kept driving through the mud and dirt for about 0.2 miles until I was able to get back on the road. Mud and dirt everywhere. It will take me forever to get it out in all sorts of spots. Besides a scratched front bumper and some missing paint there I couldn't find any damage.

Why am I tell you this? I'm the most cautious driver I know and still got "hit". The only reaction from my wife was that she first didn't believe it happened to me...
You know how to drive - be careful, it will bite very very quick and when it slips it slips.

I'm a member on this board for many years - the only reason I post this under a different account is that the internet never forgets. I don't like the idea that this comes up in a search if I EVER decide to sell it.

With spelling and grammar like yours, we can figure out who you are.

That's your problem. Driving cautiously never gives the opportunity to learn to correct. Drive carefully but assertively in traffic, and on occasion, drive it like you stole it when nobody is around and there is room for error. Oh, and make sure your tires are warm!

That's my philosophy anyway.

Shite sometimes happens to anyone, even if you think you are always in control. I sure would like to see the youtube of this one as you go 4 wheeling and back onto the road trailing mud clods. "Yeah, I meant to do that....Nothing to see here. Move along." LOL.

You are lucky it ended pretty well. I just saw a post about a Vette guy who was out on a warm sunny day, fun run, this weekend; but, won't be down to breakfast.

I appreciate the reminder from a fortunate survivor.

So if you EVER decide to sell it, you aren't going to disclose that you went four wheeling in it?

I suspect that spinaround is one of those VA guys with a post count in the teens, and it will be someone that posts in this thread under his regular username in order to misdirect us from suspecting him. Or, he won't post in this thread in order to misdirect us from suspecting him because he knows that we think that he will post here in order to misdirect us.

Glad you're a honest person not out to fuck anybody over buying a viper. Your apparent long standing membership here has granted you immunity (in your mind or your AE's).

Own your mistake or miss happenings (we all have them) or don't post about it this way.

Glad you're ok.

Yeah, and I've never raced or drifted my Viper. It's never seen water, not even a car wash, original tank of fuel, oil, and tires too. That adds to the value right?

It added value but since you farted in your seats the value decreased.
