    Default Look what i woke up to...



    I believe it happened between 3am and 7am when my roommate woke me uip to tell me. This just weeks before a track day ive been waiting all summer for. Tires were practically new too, only had one session on them.

    More pics here:

    So it doesnt look like i'll be able to make it to redline streets of willow weekend at the end of the month. ive been waiting all summer for the weather to cool down and now this happens.

    OUCH! That hurts... I had the same thing happen to me way way way back with my Integra. I thought as long as you don't have a Honda you would be okay... I guess times have changed!

    So does it mean everyone should adjust their car alram's shocking sensor tomost sensitive level? What a....

    If a car is being jacked up is not sensible, then car alram is not working in this condition....

    By the way, is there any wheel lock on the market that can really prevent this tragedy?

    Shinkuu....that's painful...I know...

    Man that sucks! Sorry it had happen to you. Those people should be shot. Did you call the police or insurance? I hope they get caught and prosecuted. And maybe your insurance will replace the wheels and tires for ya given your deductable is not too high. Good luck. Hope to see you back at teh track soon.

    Wow, that really sucks. My heart goes out to ya. At least they left the car on bricks and didn't just drop it on the ground.
