    Default Erm....

    Isn't removing a thread about a smashed car to help stop the owner being stuck with it more or less being an accomplice in tucking someone up when they buy it without knowing?

    I agree completely. If someone wishes to post their experiences, isn't that their choice. Surely it serves as an important lesson to others? I do understand it may have been worth removing the other thread.

    A bit of a shame I think as it showed another side to Ferrari ownership and served to show accidents, mistakes and unfortunate incidents happen, Ferrari's not being exempt.

    Maybe when it's repaired a simple HPI check will bring up CAT D.

    It was removed at the request of the Committee,

    Doesn't really matter who requested it though does it?

    From what I could see he managed to hit the post nicely from the back. Properly centred to... with a bit of luck you might have some bumper to be replaced (big piece of kit on the F430 covering much of the arse.. and the rear hatch. Inside who knows.. maybe mufflers ?

    So am I right in thinking would not even necessarily fall into cat D ?

    I think it'd be nice to hear from P, the owner, how the damage looked. My guess is a little more substantial than bodywork, judging by the fluids on the ground and the possibility that it may have slammed backwards over the concrete curb. I thought it was interesting to see an unfortunate side of supercar ownership from an owner who whilst surely gutted, was open enough to share the experience.

    I too am struggling to understand why this thread was removed.

    From what I saw, is there a chance that the rear of the gearbox may have taken a hit? - could it have punched the whole drivetrain forward? don't know, only a guess.

    I have only had my 360 a year and its my first super car but she still scares me as to what the car can do. I think all the time it scares you a little, its a good thing as it keeps me very aware of my driving abilities and keeps respect for the cars power and the 430's got another 100HP!!

    He must be gutted - an expensive lesson to learn.
