      There doesn't appear to be any body damage, I think the wheel is like that because of the torque

      Wat? Nobody complains about a crubbed FR-S deserving its own thread?

      I am awaiting the BRZ crash thread with all the teeny boppers thinking they are Ken Block with their Subarus.

      You didn't hear about the version with rear steering? They copied Nissan's HICAS system.

      Then he'll be able to see that Jalopnik credits the photo to "VWvortex.com".

      I did this back in '93 in my '91 5.0 Mustang LX at the ripe ole' age of 19. Had two passengers in the back and did not think about the extra weight a power slide around a corner could cause. Hit the curb after a couple oversteers and hit the rear passenger rim on the curb. Bent the axle, but not the rim. $40 from a junkyard and I was back on the road.
