Legacy vs. Ditch

Recommended Posts

I'll let the pictures do the talking...




















You've figured by now that my legacy went through that ditch. The very thoughts going thourgh my mind at the time were "oh sh*t, f*ck, sh*t, insurance...". I was doing this slight turn at about 40 when I realized the car wasn't turning. I managed to will myself to not hit the brakes and just keep applying light pressure to the gas, letting the AWD try to work it through.


The next second the driver side of the car was in the ditch doing 25. I just cranked the wheel over to the right and the legacy managed to pop itself back out. I stopped to evaluate the damage, and behold... none. Some people are just gonna say "Subaru engineering at it's best blah blah blah." No. I got really lucky that the earth in the ditch was really muddy and my car didn't bottom out. But anyway! I figured people would get a kick out of this so enjoy http://legacygt.com/forums/images/icons/icon7.gif!


P.S. The right side of the road at the time wasn't plowed, it was plowed by the time I got back to take the pictures.

P.P.S. I bought a filter mag for the legacy.

:eek: You're lucky there was no major damage. I bet you thought it was fun when it was all over. I did something similar to that with no damage. Scared all the way through it but afterwards I was like, "Man what a rush, I wanna do it again." But I didn't.:D

My first question is where is there still snow? It was mid-60's here in NE Wisconsin today. That or it was some rehashing here. I will say the post 7pm sunsets are nice once again. :)


Anywho, nice to see you got out without damage and help. How's the steering and alignment, no changes hopefully? I know those things can be effected even in slow-speed encounters.

I go to school at SUNY Geneseo in W. New York. The weather this past friday was amazing, hopefully this will be the last snow this season.


Hmm not too far away. I didn't go outside any today, been working on stuff but from when I looked out the window I didn't see anything like that.
