Bye bye Honda!

It was honestly a great car, but it bored me so I’m not even mad, just happy to be alive.

I complained about those goodyears since the day I got the car new (I hate goodyears with a passion).. absolutely zero traction. Touched a bit of standing water and that’s all it took, zero control, 70mph sideways into a tree. Airbags blown, B pillar pushed in, everything scratched, wires ripped out, it’s definitely totaled.

My built STI will have daily duty for now! So it will make some interesting UOAs.
The goal is to find an old 2002/03 wrx hatch to restore and daily (don’t want payments ever again). Also from now on.. my driveway will be Subaru only and no more Goodyear tires ever.

The accident:

RainX?
Bit too fast, maybe?
I'd delete your video.

Apparently you drove too fast for conditions and your recovery skills. So glad you are not hurt.

Yep, you were running it a little too hard! Guessing those weren't GY Aquatreds or Tripletreds, right?? You're lucky to not have been seriously hurt.

If you knew the tires were bad, you should have swapped them out a long time ago. I did the same on a car I bought. Hated the tires because they had no traction. That seems to be the thing with factory tires, low rolling resistance for better gas mileage so they can goose up their CAFE numbers but who cares about stopping or handling.

No doubt. Interesting how it holds so "steady" for drifting sideways.

You should have it crushed into a solid block of steel, glass and rubber and put it in your front yard as a memorial.

Yeah - don't think this was the tires, speed seems to be the main issue. Look how fast the lane markings are going by and how fast the water is beading up in the windshield, not to mention the incredible wind noise.

100% Operator error.

Lol that’s called RainX that’s applied to the windshield to make it do that, and that’s about 70mph the same as everyone else was doing.
