Glad you're okay man. That's a wicked T-Bone. RIP Speed6.

What kind of steak did you get? Effing T-Boned.

You said it, glad we have curtain bags. And I am glad you are okay.

Are you going to get another MS6? Buy that banana back and swap over your parts then sell the rest.

No, I didn't buy it back from the insurance company. I got the majority of the aftermarket parts off of it that I could since it was sitting in a yard where I couldn't easily jack it up to get all the parts I wanted. I was able to snag the gauges and gauge pod, CAI, CounterShift and Shortcut.

Funny thing is, when this happened I was actually going to the auto parts store to pick up some spark plugs for it and was going to switch on the winter rims that afternoon. It would have been nicer to have the steelies and winters on it when this happened, because the summer tires were only a couple seasons old.

Unfortunately I didn't get another Speed6. In the next year or so my wife and I were going to be looking for a larger vehicle for when kids come around (and for the dog) so I just bought the vehicle I would have in a year anyways. The amount I got for the car from insurance wasn't going to be what I could get for a trade in or selling used in a couple years if I bought another Speed6, so I took the money and put it towards something different. Unfortunately something a little less fun, but I'm still enjoying it a lot.

There will be some parts up for sale, but since I'm in Ontario I don't know if they'll be worth it for the majority of people here cause shipping to the States isn't cheap.

Thanks for all the well wishes, unfortunate to see another Speed6 go.

For what it's worth, if anyone in Ontario is poking around a junk yard and sees the car, it's still got some parts in it worth snagging haha. SPC balljoints, SIRIUS factory radio in behind the dash, Prosport sandwich plate (with oil temp and pressure sensors still in it) with spin on oil filter conversion. Plus, the rims were only plasti-dipped with a pin stripe on them, so the black just needed to be peeled off and the stock finish was still there in excellent shape. Should have swapped to winter rims/tires that morning

Well, what you end up getting in the interim?


Mind saying what you got paid out on?
